I am a huge fan of Asia’s blog Fun at Home with Kids – so when she asked me to review her book I couldn’t have been happier. 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids is a very beautiful, high quality book with great photography – all taken by Asia herself! The book includes slime recipes, dough recipes, paint recipes, small world set-ups, sensory activities, DIY toys and more. There are many taste-safe options suggested where applicable and lots of glow-in-the-dark ideas too! It also includes several scientific explanations plus ideas on where to source some of the ingredients and materials.
Asia asked me to try out one of the activities and I had to tell her that this wasn’t possible. ONE? No way – there were far too many to choose from. In the end we did FIVE of the activities – and all were a great success!
The afternoon we received the book, we immediately made this banana play dough – with fresh banana! I don’t usually make no-cook play dough, but this turned out really well, and we had all the ingredients to hand.
The next morning we had a lot of fun with this Pom Pom Shooter – F loved pinging the pom poms all over the room!
Later that day F helped me dye some noodles and then he got some cutting practice with them as well as some sensory play.
And even later that day (you see, all these things we could do with store-cupboard ingredients!) I made some sticky mud for his dinosaur toys. The book’s version is a much more interesting small world layout than my toys, rocks and sticky mud attempt – but it still kept F entertained for quite some time!
The next day we played with this super cool outer space slime! We’ve made several slime concoctions before but this was a new one to us! We used silver and gold glitter to make this slime – both of which were generously sent to us by craftprojectideas.com.
Don’t forget to get buy your own copy of the book!
