Activity Books For Summer & Beyond

summer-bridge-activities.gifSince Laurel is academically oriented by nature, this summer I've been all about simply playing and getting her outside and active. However, she loves activity books and they are my go-to item to bring to restaurants and when we travel, and we also use them for quiet time at home. And whether you want to use activity books to warm your child up before the school year starts, or simply want to use them on the go or at home as we do, check out Carson-Dellosa's Summer Bridge Activities. Though these activity books are marketed as a tool to prevent summer learning loss, you really can use them any time of year. The workbooks cover language arts, math, science, and social studies for Pre-K through 8th grade via colorful illustrations and activities. My one recommendation is to consider adjusting the level depending on your child; since Laurel is very good at reading and math, the K-1 book was too easy for her, but the 1st-2nd grade book has proven fun yet challenging.

Now, want to be one of three winners to receive a Summer Bridge book? Here's how:
