Pretty Printables: Kiddies Holiday Activity Book

This is the first year that I have needed to work while my boys are home on holiday and it got me thinking about some fun ideas to keep my older, nearly 4 year old busy boy occupied. I decided to make an A5 size bound activity book that I can then keep as a memory record after he's coloured his way through. This is what I came up with:

Next, I searched online and found a number of great dot-to-dots from Turtle Diary that my son is into at the moment, and printed an assortment of them, eg:

The next step was the most time-consuming because the process became completely addictive. I used Coloring Page Creator to turn a few family photos into our very own colouring-in pages. Like so:

And lastly, I created a few interactive pages prompting him to draw his favourite items / family members, eg:

The trick is to assemble them all in an interesting order. I also included a few sticker pages and pieces of cardstock cut-offs I had in my craft file. I loved making this so much I am thinking of making a few more to give out as prezzies.

Please feel free to download any of the above files by clicking on the respective pictures to download the rest of the files in it's group. 

Happy printing!
