It has been raining cats and dogs in September and has got us thinking about all our favourite activity books, that are perfect for preventing boredom when the sun isn't shining.

Write Your Own Mystery and Ghost Stories £8.99

When the wind is howling outside, and the rain is thundering down, what better inspiration could you want for writing your very own ghost story? Try our favourite 'haunted house' task and see how you can recreate those spooky elements in your writing.

Rubber Stamp Activities £11.99

This colourful book is full of fun, and the perfect way to bring some sunshine back into your life. Some of our favourite stamping scenes include creating a page of sausage dogs, and adding rubber ducks to a bubble bath.

Snow White Jigsaw and Picture Book £9.99
