150 Screen-Free Activities for Kids – book Review

I received a free copy of this kids activities book. That did not sway me into writing a positive review. The book is fab!

Asia over at Fun at Home with Kids is an amazing blogger who has some of the most fantastic, easily- doable kids activities on her blog. She has come out with a fabulous book packed with practical play ideas for kids all ages. I was instantly captivated with all the fun play ideas and the gorgeous easily readable layout of the book. The ” Yes! I can do this activity with the kids now” part of the book was a big seller for me.

One of the first recipes we have tried is this gorgeous “Easy Dough” as it is called on Page 50.

Just 2 simple ingredients are needed for this activity and you will easily engage your kids for hours.

With Asia’s recipe the kids made a bunch of  cold snow balls. Yes they had a blast in a bowl full of “snowballs”..

At the end of each chapter Asia goes over a series of variations and extensions. With each activity you can use her ideas to modify the activity for babies, toddlers or even older kids. Many of her play recipes are Gluten-Free, Diary-Free, Nut-Free for those will allergies. Most of the sensory recipes are taste-safe as well. We extended her “Easy dough” recipe and made a fun little snowman for ourselves.


I can also see how this book can be the BEST gift for any kids care giver. Are you looking for a perfect gift for your child’s preschool teacher? Her/His birthday may be? Teacher Appreciation day? I think this book will make a wonderful gift for teachers of young children. The book has a chock full of inexpensive play and learning ideas { like this genius idea for “snowballs”}

150 Screen-Free Activities for kids has a good collection of sensory play ideas for those little sensory seekers. Kids who have an overwhelming desire to touch and feel anything. Sensory seekers learnt through touch. These little ones will greatly benefit from this book.

Babies– yes those little people who steal our heart but so hard to engage! Asia has them covered as well. The woman has thought of everything and everyone. Her baby play ideas are a huge hit all over the internet. These activities ( her recipes) are baby – safe and taste safe. I personally was floored by her “No-cook Finger Paint Recipe” {Page 99}

If you are looking to make a raffle basket or a gift basket, this book has you covered.  Just how amazing is this sensory play kit. For more information Asia has a written a post on how to make the perfect gift basketsensory kit
