Family Fun for Summer

30 Summer Activities for Families to Share

by Jane Butcher


Price: £4.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:May 2012
What a fantastic little resource book to have on hand for times when the children are off school. Its entitled holiday activities, but truthfully a lot of these activities would work anywhere, anytime that children are a bit bored and you need inspiration for what to do with them! Each activity has a biblical theme or reference tied into it, so that makes this a good book for anyone involved with children’s ministry too because there are some activities that can be tailored to Sunday school sessions. Simple crafting activities, food based activities, outdoor fun and some simple wordsearches and spot the difference pages make this a really good all round tool that could be a lifesaver for a harried parent or time pressed children’s leader and at such a great price too – under £5, now that's a real bargain and most of the activities inside of the book are only going to cost pennies as well. Fantastic value indeed.
