Easter Activities

1st March 2018

Here at Usborne Books at Home we love an activity book, so we thought we'd share some of our favourite spring themed activities with you this March.

That's not my chick...

That's not my chick is an adorable new addition to the That's not my family, and is a perfect spring read for young children. To match your bedtime reading, colour in one of our favourite pictures from the book - the chick with the fuzzy tummy!

Farm Picture Puzzle Book 

Full of spot, match and counting opportunities, we love this Farm Picture Puzzle Book for keeping little ones busy, and encouraging lots of conversations about all the things they can see in the pictures. It wouldn't be Easter without lots of bunny rabbits, so see how many your little ones can spot on this page!
