Family Fun for Summer

19 Jul 2012

A book of 30 fun-filled, faith-related activities: 'What a fantastic little resource book to have on hand for times when the children are off school. Its entitled holiday activities, but truthfully a lot of these activities would work anywhere, anytime that children are a bit bored and you need inspiration for what to do with them! Each activity has a biblical theme or reference tied into it, so that makes this a good book for anyone involved with children's ministry too because there are some activities that can be tailored to Sunday school sessions. Simple crafting activities, food-based activities, outdoor fun and some simple word searches and spot the difference pages make this a really good all round tool that could be a lifesaver for a harried parent or time-pressed children's leader and at such a great price too - under a fiver, now that's a real bargain and most of the activities inside of the book are only going to cost pennies as well. Fantastic value indeed.' Review by The Good Book Stall
