Bumper Wipe Clean Activities
It's wonderful that each and every one of the activities in this book are reusable and can be passed through all 3 of my boys! The best thing about it to me is that crayons work GREAT with it. We've taken this to church with us a few times for my two oldest and my niece. We're trying to adopt a somewhat minimalist lifestyle, so Grasshopper(4) and Firefly(2) each have a single pair of khakis that they wear to church each Sunday. (We do swap out their shirts.) When Firefly pulled out the black marker that is included with this book, I had a little panic attack at its close proximity to his pants. ;) It was quickly replaced with a crayon, and I'm excited that it worked out so well. All you need is something to wipe it off(a baby wipe works great, paired with something to dry it off) and you're good to go for another round of activities!
There are 67 pages of activities in this book. They are all Bible related, which makes it a great, quiet attention keeper during church! They include such activities as mazes, connect the dots, coloring pages, matching games, drawing, "what doesn't belong", and many more. There are activities to help teach numbers and counting, along with tracing. Grasshopper is having trouble grasping numbers, so this is especially beneficial to him.
We're very pleased with this book, and highly recommend it for little ones 2-5(ish). I'm keeping it in mind for Christmas presents this year!
*A huge "Thank You" to Kregel Publications for providing us with a review copy of this book in exchange for our honest opinion. We loved it!
