If you're looking for ways to keep the kids entertained on a long journey, or perhaps you're after ideas for fun projects to do at home, this collection is packed with brilliant activity books for you.

Puzzle and sticker books are great way to keep the kids amused (and give you some respite from the squabbling in the back seat) and they come in very handy if there are airport delays. Grab a few pens and a colouring book when you head out with young children in the evening, and you'll have a peaceful dinner & contented kids.

You can also find lots of puzzles and colouring pages, inspired by some of our favourite children's books, to download from our Kids Zone.

Take a look at A Summer of Adventure collection for family friendly books, practical tips and inspired ideas to make the most of the great outdoors this summer. Or you can head out into the country for some foraging, beach exploring and adventuring. 

There are some great ideas for art and craft activities to try at home in Unlock their inner artist - 20 inspiring children's books about arts and crafts.

And if your kids want to curl up with a book, you'll find brilliant fiction for all ages, from pre-schoolers to YA readers, in our Summer Reading Guide.
