BUT.... it's a four and a half hour drive! I'll have two boys to keep busy, and I am sure that when YOU go on vacation you will have children that need something to do as well. We can play the alphabet game, the cow game and how many _____ can you find type of games. BUT it's good to have quieter things they can do as well. Enter therein a couple of vacation help books.
It's a nice sized book (8.5 by 11) with all images well away from the edges of the page, making it ideal to work on wherever you are. 62 pages of fun for your children. I would say its geared to 6-10 year olds.
It starts off with tattoo, 2 pages each of two sets of designs. None of them are scary monsters, they actually look pretty friendly. :)
This is followed by 32 pages of monster activities. From colouring to drawing pictures to seek and find and more. A fun little book about 9 x 5 inches. Easy to take along as it lies flat with pages that would come out easily if needed. This book is good for younger children.
