What is the Purpose of Children’s Activity Books?
The purpose of activity books for kids is that by completing colourful and fun activities they are learning without realising it. Younger children can find it difficult to concentrate for periods of time and children’s activity books can help with this. By keeping them absorbed in the tasks and games included in the books, you can help them increase their length of focus on one particular thing. Our Peter Rabbit Activity Book is the perfect start, using lovable characters to engage children. Or perhaps our Snail and the Whale Nature Trail. Learning doesn’t have to boring and the sense of pride and accomplishment that children feel when they complete an activity, such as seeing the image that forms when they join the dots, is important. Activity books build confidence in young children and will help them feel they are capable as they move forward with their learning skills.
Why are Activity Books Important for a Child’s Development?
Activity books are a key part of any child’s development. They provide the basis for reading and learning that will become essential later in their academic education. Early learning and activity books play an integral role in the recognition of colours and shapes, which are precursors to letters and numbers. Children’s activity books also help develop fine motor skills, such as holding crayons, pencils and scissors. This helps build strength in the hand and finger muscles whilst having fun. This comes together with hand eye coordination, another essential skill. Choose an activity book that your kids will love, such as our ABC Activity Book or our Number Activity Book. Through colouring in a picture, following a maze or joining the dots to show them their first number or letter, they will learn to focus their attention on activities for longer periods of time.
What’s the Difference Between an Activity Book and Workbook?
Children’s activity books are designed to help develop basic skills, such as holding a pen or scissors, joining dots, following mazes, spotting the difference. Whereas children’s workbooks provide a format in which they complete activities and answer questions to reinforce skills they have already learned, in turn preparing them for school in a more formal way.
