Activity Books for Kids

Kids having fun with books outside

It's time for some...ACTIVITY BOOK FUN!

Who said books are just for telling stories? There's so much more to reading, and you can actually PLAY with so many books! Activity books make for fantastic boredom busters on a rainy day, play-mate on nights out or on holidays, or learning tools to develop language, cognitive function and logic. But let's move on to the fun part...

Whether you want to solve important puzzles from history, or simply find some fun way to pass the time on holiday, you're sure to find your perfect match among the list of fantastic titles for all ages below. Choose from sticker books, arts & crafts books and puzzle books for indoor fun, or nature guides and activity books to encourage the children to get outdoors and start exploring.

And if these books aren't enough, be sure to check out our Usborne-dedicated blog post, or this selection of activity books for toddlers. For a focus on mental health, you could read about Summersdale's workbook series and monster mental health series.

Get ready to make your way through mazes, search for hidden words and travel through time!
