We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these books and even more so, our kids LOVE them!! They are some of the most fantastic activity books we have ever had.
Why? Well, these are created by MindWare and here’s how they describe them:
Exercise your left and right brain at the same time with these complex dot to dot puzzles. Intricate, challenging and wildly rewarding to finish, Extreme Dot to Dot: Around the USA puzzles range from 500 to over 1,400 dots. Some puzzles even cover a two-page spread! Counting, mapping and concentration are just a few of the educational benefits. 32 puzzles per book.
And for our kids, they BEG to do these. This is their “break” activity between school lessons, or break from chores or whatever. They say that they are for age 8, but our son who had just turned 6 enjoyed these so much! I even know 4 year olds that love these!
Here’s a video that shows why we as the parents love these and why the kids do too 🙂
Why do we not mind them to beg us to do them? Well, because they are actually learning and exercising their brains! When we are talking about 1,400 dots in some of the puzzles, they are counting to that number too!
We can’t keep these in stock in our house! I was getting ready to order more from Mindware at $8.95 plus $6 in shipping for the books, but the price is totally worth it! I decided to peek on Amazon, and Amazon has been $9.95 – $16.95 per book each time I check. Well….. they are much cheaper and have FREE shipping right now and so I was very excited to find this!
So I am telling you as this is a super, super summer activity book for kids ages 6+. It challenges and engages them for a long time too! They are also great for road trips!
They have many of these on sale right now, for example the prehistoric book above with 32 puzzles is on sale for $5.94 with free shipping with Amazon Prime or a $25 or more order.
Then once you are on the page, you can scroll down the page and look for this image to find many other themed Extreme Dot To Dot books on sale right now too! Stock-up for the summer!
The themes of the books are also educational – such as landmarks, famous inventors, animals, places, etc.! So that is just an extra “learning” plus when they kids think they are just having fun 🙂
If you want to try a page, there is a free download from the USA Places book as a sample of some of the puzzles. This sample page has 651 dots, so a bit simpler (the book starts in the mid-hundreds and works up to the 1,400 dots puzzles by the end of the 32 puzzles in the book)
*Please note, the prices on Amazon can change at any time, so we can’t guarantee that these prices will last long!
