This fabulously fun London-based book contains 22 activities that will entertain children on a day out in the vibrant city of London. Big pages with plenty of space to draw on and colour in will appeal to young children who may still be developing their fine motor skills, while other pages with more detailed drawings and activities will suit older children. Choose from spot the difference in the crown jewels at The Tower of London, design a river boat to sail on the River Thames or doodle pigeons in Trafalgar Square. Draw an iconic landmark statue or a favourite painting in a gallery. Complete and personalise the pull-out postcards and send them to friends and family. These are just a few of the many activities you’ll find that are all centred around the sights of London.
Fun and educational, the London Activity Book will help children to develop a wide range of skills, including observational, conversational and motor skills, and will make sure they get the most out of their visit to London.
