Buddy & Vernon takes Isobel (and me) into an adventure

I've noticed that Isobel is getting a wee bit too attached to her ipad and telly. So, when I got this activity book, Isobel (and ok ok too!) couldn't wait to start the adventure together! Needed to find an afternoon that we were both free...and TODAY was the day! Yay.

Each activity is tailored into an adventure -- from "gardening", "cooking", "inventing" and even a bit of walking down memory lane, trying to draw our family tree (which is really complicated in the Iking-Azmi clan!)

The teachers told me that Isobel has a teeny bit of AHDD in her, so I hope this activity book (Volume 1) teaches Bel in seeing projects completed from start to finish. I like that there are empty 'spaces' for Isobel and I to stick pictures of our projects on to. A brilliant masterpiece keepstake that I MUST treasure,  so when Isobel grows up and starts being a tween, and gets all prissy with me, I have this to jog her memory about how cool a mum I am. Teehee.

Recommended for children from 5 to 8. Isobel's just 4, but we found that most of the activities can be done with minimum help from her father or I.

PERFECT way to bond and spend quali time together.

Here's a short vlog of one of our activities  done this afternoon:
