We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

I think it is so important to offer your kids a variety of activities to do in the summer.  I know it is so easy for my girls to get locked into the TV or their tablets all day – so I love having a variety of activities for them to do, especially those that encourage learning and creativity.

This is why we love Parragon Books, we have found so many fun activity books to do this summer!  Here are a few of our favorites.
