As I’ve mentioned before my favorite kind of preschool activity books are the write-on, wipe-off kind! Not only is it much easier for kids to be able to master things when they’re able to repeat them, these books, when made well, are perfect for passing along to siblings!
Preschool Book – Bumper Wipe Clean Activities
Bumper Wipe Clean Activities has all the best of my favorite preschool ingredients! I love the heavy duty cover and spiral binding that allows it to lay perfectly flat for the kids to work on the pages. The pages themselves are well laminated and sturdy enough for little fingers to grip. Although the marker that is included is a little on the wimpy side, it’s nice that they do send one that works, and we have several packs of dry erase markers we picked up at the store for just a few dollars.
I that this is the perfect book for my kids age range 3-5. I’d say that it is probably perfectly suited for a four year old. However, my 3 year old was able to enjoy the simpler activities like drawing a line between the similar animals, following paths, and coloring in blank pages; while my five year old really enjoyed the more complicated dot-to-dots that lead up to 16 and the pages where you “find the item that was not there during Bible times” pages.
The illustrations are darling, and I love how it incorporates all the “classic” children’s Bible stories–starting in the Garden and going through the triumphant entry of Jesus.
Each page has a little “blurb” about a Bible story–just one or two sentences long–and then instructions for what to do for the page. I like this because it gives a little reminder of the story but keeps it’s main purpose as an activity book. I was impressed with just how many pages it has (it’s a thick little book!) and the variety of activities available.
My kids both love this book and I’d highly recommend it–but don’t just take my word for it! Go check out the Bumper Wipe Clean Activities Amazon Reviews so far it has 5 stars!
