This week’s children’s book review is all about Sunday Fun Day by Katherine Halligan and Jesus Verona. The book was published by Nosy Crow and it can be purchased on Amazon.
A gorgeous gift book filled with 52 seasonal activities that families and friends can enjoy together, published in collaboration with the National Trust.
Make every Sunday a fun day with an inspirational nature activity for every weekend of the year! From green-fingered gardening projects and outdoor obstacle courses to creative crafts and warming winter recipes, there is something for everyone, whatever the weather. Packed with super seasonal activities for children (and adults!) of all ages, this book will make every family weekend a fantastic one.
Presented in a beautiful hardback format with cloth binding and featuring stunning full colour illustrations from Jesús Verona on every page, this is a book to be treasured for years to come.
If you are a family with children, like us, you probably get stuck for ideas of things to do on a weekend. While it’s nice to go out on adventures or trips away they cost a lot of money so it’s great to be able to find things to do locally or at home. This book is fantastic as it has something to do for every week of the year and it’s split up until seasons so really easy to follow.
All of the activities are really varied and never feels repetitive. Some include things like a recipe, something to collect outdoors with an activity to do at home or it could be something to do on a day out somewhere. There are so many nature related activities too which I really loved. It’s great to get children thinking about their surrounding and doing a whole range of things with things like leaves or twigs.
A worry with a book like this is the cost of activities but that’s really not an issue. I would say that most of the activities are either free or extremely low cost and might include items you already have at home. For example, flower pressing only requires newspaper and parchment paper as well as the leaves and flowers which you can pick for free (from somewhere it’s allowed). Alternatively, a recipe will have a small cost due to the ingredients needed,
Sunday Fun Day is such a bright and vibrant book with beautiful illustrations to go with the activities. Each page is broken down into different sections including a ‘You will need’ area and then instructions for what you need to do. Everything is really easy to follow and I love that there are picture examples too for the final result for some things.
This is going to be a book we use all the time and I can’t wait to see which activities Erin likes the most.
