Parents like myself all over the world are on the hunt for more ways to keep our kids engaged without being tied to an electronic device. Parragon has lots of great options for kids of all ages to help build their brain while keeping them engaged in activities not involving electronics. I received Professor Murphy’s Brain-Busting Puzzles & Riddles, Craft Factory Dinosaur Stencil Activity, and Factivity Space to try out with my kids this Back To School season and they were a big hit!
My sons are 11 and 13 and they really enjoyed the Professor Murphy’s Brain Busting Puzzles & Riddles. These puzzles are easy enough for younger children like mine, but at the same time challenging enough that a few had me stumped…until we found the answer. Some of them are funny, some of them are confusing, and some of them are just plain for training your brain. Seeing my teen/tween sons having fun with a book was the best feeling ever…I’m one happy mom over here! No electronic cords, no screens to stare at, just a good old fashioned book in hand, nothing could be better.
Factivity Space is a great educational tool as well as a way for kids to have fun while they learn. My daughter (who will be 5 in a few weeks) loves learning, and this was a great way to share some extra knowledge with her. The Factivity book is full of great information about space, and gets children’s imagination running. The colorable poster and puzzle are a really nice touch. The included colored pencils are perfect for however your little artist wants to create their poster or puzzle.
Last but not least is the Craft Factory Dinosaur Stencil Activity. This was my daughter’s absolute favorite of the Parragon books that we have tried.
You can only see a small portion of the posters in the background, but we have that whole wall covered in educational posters. I am doing preschool curriculum at home with my daughter and we’ve actually worked the Dinosaur Stencil Activity Book into our lesson plans. This book helps build fine motor skills while helping encourage holding the pencil the proper way. There’s no better way to learn than having fun while doing it.
These are just a few of TONS of children’s books that Parragon has to offer, make sure you check out their entire selection. You’ll be sure to find one (of a few) that are just right for your children.
