Never posted before so apologies if I'm putting this in the wrong place. But I wondered if anyone has suggestions for a book of things to do with 3-6 year olds. Arts, crafts, outdoors, games, baking, making...anything and everything. I'm not the most imaginative parent so any book that covers a range of topics would be great to hear about. Thanks!

You could try the blog - Playing By The Book - Zoe does lots of really lovely activities based around books.

I know exactly what you mean, getting ideas for fun things is a nightmare! I used these guys over the Christmas holidays and were pretty good...
If you're looking for fun ways to get your kids reading you can also check this out... they're card games, my kids love them in the evening we play and defs helps their reading!

Good luck smile

I'm not very imaginative either @Busyfeetsmum. I found my library had some good books and I found Pinterest useful too smile

Usborne do a range of activity books , if you search on Amazon 'usborne things to do' it will bring up a whole list of books e.g. -
Big book of science things to make and do
Things to do on a train journey
Things to make and do with paper and cardboard

We've got an Easter and Christmas one, both of which are good.

Not sure if I'd recommend the sciencecone *daisy. Seem to remember my little nutter spending most of a summer in the kitchen doing experiments and never having anything left to bake

Not a book, but the imagination tree (blog by Early Years art teacher/ mum of 4) is a brilliant resource for everything you mentioned!

Also, the free activity ideas section on hands on as we grow.

I second the usborne ones. The instructions are clear and the Dc can follow them by themselves.
Usborne little children's book of things to do (DD's favourite)
Usborne 365 Science activities (DS's favourite)
Usborne big book of things to make and do
