Book Title: Creative Kids
Author: Dr. Surbhi Prapanna
Number of Pages: 81
Review: Creative Kids
‘Creative Kids’ is a collection of 26 easy art, craft, DIY and fun activities for kids. The best part about these activities is that these are simple & entertaining and can be prepared using easily available inexpensive home supplies. All the activities are designed by the author which she used to keep her kids creatively engaged at home. As per the author, these activities are suitable for kids 4-9 years old however I felt some activities can be done with toddlers too under supervision.
The author has very neatly explained each activity starting with the story behind that particular activity which adds the personal charm to the book. I really liked the tips, learnings, and benefits shared at the end of each activity. My personal favorites are the group activities to promote intellectual development in kids and patchwork & scrapbooking which can be enjoyed as family activities. She has also recommended some books to learn more about these activities which I found a great addition.
I am really impressed by the way each chapter is outlined keeping in mind the interest of kids. The author has also suggested an interesting TV series for kids which is not just a source of entertainment but provides a great learning experience for both kids as well as adults.
Then there are some crafts which are totally inspired by nature and others which recycle and upcycle old things. These are some really thoughtful activities where kids get to learn some major life lessons while enjoying their craft work. The author has two daughters hence some of the activities are girl-oriented like preparing natural lip balm and hair care DIY masks. But I guess, even little boys would enjoy making these.
Creative Kids is a must have for all kids & parents who love DIY activities. You get to try some easy and fun art & craft activities without burning a hole in your pocket. The best part about the book is the author’s personal touch and the variety of topics which not only covers the activities but also talks about the intellectual and personality development of the kids. If you want to make your summer vacations cool, go grab your copy now!
I want to congratulate Author Dr. Surbhi Prapanna for publishing her first E-book and I wish her all the very best for her journey as an author.
