Keep Your Kids Inspired All Summer Long!

Posted: 2017/06/23

Now that summer is officially here, we know moms and dads are probably wondering how to keep their kids active, interested, and engaged in learning in fun and exciting ways. Even better are activities that keep the kids occupied without constant parental supervision—that way the adults can enjoy their summer, too!

Here at Thomas Allen we have plenty of titles and activity books that your kids will actually want to use.

Our Summer Brain Quest series is great for kids of all ages and learning styles. In a flexible paperback format and complete with a variety of activities for both indoor and outdoor fun, this series is perfect to keep those summer brains active! The series covers 6 different grade ranges and, best of all, is created around an interactive quest adventure that feels like a game.

We know how much kids love fidget spinners, and what better way to keep them occupied on long drives to the cottage or indoors on a rainy day than with Fun with Fidget Spinners? This book is jam-packed with 50 tricks and games to master the fidget spinner, from beginner to advanced levels. We won’t blame the parents if they just happen to pick up a fidget spinner and this title while the kids are asleep, either!

From arts and crafts to sports, science and mathematics to general reading, kids with a variety of interests have a book to occupy them. Take these titles with you wherever you go, whether that’s at home in the kitchen, in the car on a weekend getaway, or on the deck at the cottage! Your kids will be inspired to get creative and continue learning all throughout the summer.
