Keep Kids Occupied This Summer with Quarto’s New Activity Books + Reader Giveaway

We’re inching closer and closer to summer (yay!) and as I’m making my plans for my kids’ summer break from school, I’m looking to come up with some screen-free activities to keep them occupied.

I was recently sent a selection of activity books from Quarto Books that look perfect for busting boredom and having some fun. Pick up some of these for summer vacation and road trips – there’s even one that’s perfect for plane rides!

Sticker, Shape, Draw: On the Farm: My Art Activity Book

Using simple sticker shapes, children add all their favorite animals to the farmyard—cats, horses, pigs, sheep, cows, rabbits, goats, and chickens…there’s even a goose on the loose! Featuring 20 ready-drawn background scenes to populate as well as seven sheets of draw-on stickers, Sticker Shape Draw: On the Farm is a super-fun creative package—all children need to bring are pens or pencils and their own imaginations. Packed with engaging farmyard characters to construct and decorate, Sticker Shape Draw: On the Farm will keep kids (and parents too!) busy stickering and drawing for hours.

Sticker, Shape, Draw: Things That Go: My Art Activity Book

Use simple sticker shapes, children add all their favorite machines and vehicles to the scenes provided—diggers, jet planes, cars, sailboats, trucks, trains and buses… there is even a rocket and a hot air balloon! Featuring 20 ready-drawn background scenes to populate as well as seven sheets of draw-on stickers, Sticker Shape Draw: Things That Go is a super-fun creative package—all children need to bring is pens or pencils and their own imaginations. Packed with exciting vehicles to construct and decorate, Sticker Shape Draw: Things That Go will keep kids (and parents too!) busy stickering and drawing for hours.

The Great Big Busy Wheels Activity Book

It’s time to get busy with machines that roar, whizz, vroom, and zoom! This action-packed activity book is crammed full of things to find, amazing vehicles to color, and games and puzzles to entertain. Perfect for rainy days, offering both entertainment and educational value. Activities appear alongside entertaining adventure stories to engage and delight young vehicle lovers. From rescue vehicles to monster trucks, the stories feature a popular vehicle as the central character, and involve a group of animal characters in a supporting role. The activities use plots and themes from within the stories, encouraging reluctant readers to engage with the text and find out what happens next. Can the busy vehicles save the day?

On the Plane Activity Book

Taking a flight is always exciting, and this activity book is the perfect companion for your journey. Play “I Spy While I Fly,” complete a “pilots’ eye view” scene, take a multiple-choice quiz, and fill in the speech bubbles in a comic strip story. Packed with plenty to keep kids occupied at the airport or during the flight, this book also includes planes to decorate, matching games, fill-in-the-face drawing tasks, true-or-false airplane and flying facts, and behind-the-scenes diagrams to explore.

Get Smarter: Super Fun Travel Activities to Baffle Your Brain

We all love vacations, but getting there can be a hassle. Super Fun Travel Activities to Baffle Your Brain‘s 75 engaging and entertaining puzzles, games, activities, and challenges provide the perfect cure for “Are we there yet?” Hours stuck in the backseat will pass quietly and without complaint!

Don’t be surprised if this book ends up coming with you wherever you go!

Watch Me Read and Draw: Dinosaurs

It’s easy and fun to learn to draw, especially when there’s a story to read and lots of stickers. In Watch Me Read and Draw: Dinosaurs, kids will read about Pete the pterodactyl who discovers an egg and sets out to find its parent. Throughout the story, readers will learn to draw 11 prehistoric pals, step by step, including dinosaurs that roamed the land, air, and sea. Included are drawing instructions for a Pterodactyl, Apatosaurus, Compsognathus, Sauroposeidon, Ankylosaurus, Ornithomimus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, Diplodocus, Mamenchisaurus, and Triceratops!

Watch Me Read and Draw: On the Farm

It’s easy and fun to learn to draw, especially when there’s a story to read and lots of stickers. In Watch Me Read and Draw: On the Farm, a city mouse named Flynn visits his country-mouse cousin to discover everything that happens on a farm each morning. Throughout the story, readers will learn to draw a farm full of friendly animals, step by step. The step-by-step projects in this book will help young artists learn to draw a mouse, baby birds, a cow, a sheep, an owl, a pony, a cat, a pig, and a chicken, as well as a tractor and a barn!
