What I think:
This is such a simple, but brilliant idea.
52 different scavenger hunts ideas with a grid page to draw 9 corresponding items.
The scavenger hunts are divided into themes such as My house, My stuff, Outside and People so no matter where you are or what the weather is like there will be a hunt to suit your mood.
We had a go at the Creepy Crawlies page. We talked about bugs we saw in the garden, looked at some pictures and then the Little Monster set about drawing some of his own.
This books would work for kids of all ages and adults too. You can make the drawing as simple or as detailed as you like, and there some ideas for further challenges.
This would make a great present for little artists and anyone wanting to encourage kiddos to draw. It’s perfect for rainy days but I think home schoolers and parents who are looking for self-isolating and lockdown ideas would love to have a copy of this in the activity stash as you can dip in and out as you choose.
This is a gem of book and I’m so glad we have discovered it.
