What’s the best way to find the best activity books for kids aged 7 to 9? Well, we asked kids aged 7 to 9 what they thought of several popular activity books. After all, they are the experts!
We looked for quality, variety of activities and—of course—fun.
Many affordable kids activity books are black and white. That’s fine, but it’s nice to also have a full color book as well. After trying out several color activity books, we thought Parragon’s Totally Awesome Mazes and Puzzles was the best bet. Here’s why:
What We Liked
• Nice variety—there are over 200 challenges. Word searches, number puzzles, dot-to-dot, matching games.
• Sturdy, high quality pages and color printing.
What Needs Work
• No perforations. It’s always nice to be able to tear out a page to hang on the fridge. But this book’s pages aren’t perforated.
• Heavy on mazes. We like mazes, but some kids thought there were too many in this book.
