What’s better than a summer filled with road trips and long, lazy afternoons? A summer that comes fully stocked with the supplies you’ll need to keep your kids from uttering the words, “I’m bored.” Get ahead of the game with a few cool, new activity books. From art-by-sticker to beautifully designed sketchbooks, we found something for every kid. Flip through the slideshow below to see them all.

Riveting Rosie

A perfect follow-up to bestseller Rosie Revere, Engineer, this activity book stars the same bold, bright heroine, and is filled with activities that require problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Kids will work with Rosie as they design and create their own bicycle, a simple catapult, and more. There are real-life inventor profiles, games, and out-of-the-box tidbits scattered throughout the workbook, all perfect for getting kids to ask the big questions and think creatively. We have a feeling there might be a few made-from-trash treasures popping up this summer!

Ages: 5 - 7 years.

Available at amazon.com, $10.37.
