Book Review of Dr.Surbhi Prapanna’s ‘Creative Kids’


Mothering is a beautiful art and what better way to learn it than from another mother. Mostly our mothering style is a lot inspired by our own mothers and if not we often seek other mothers’ help or best practices while evolving our own style. This is how I guess it should be and particularly for me I learn a lot from fellow mothers in the blogosphere and my academy and try to assimilate and weave in all that seems ideal and worth emulating.

Summer vacations have just commenced and I was on a look out for some interesting fun activities for the little one to keep his boredom at bay and let his creative juices ooze out. That’s when I stumbled on my dear friend, Dr. Surbhi Prapanna’s debut ebook ‘Creative Kids’ and I instantly had a premonition that our summer vacations are totally sorted now. 

Indeed, I was right every way, me and and my boy we read the book together and did almost all of the activities listed there in and loved it to the core..hence I thought of writing its review here in the bigger benefit for most moms.

About the Book

This e-book is a collection of 26 easy art. crafts, DIY and fun activities for kids ( with A2Z theme). All these activities are simple, interesting and made up with available at home supplies. This  is author’s first ebook and she is nervously excited to start her author journey. The book is a little effort from her side to keep the kids creatively engaged and help parents raising a creative child. He is hoping you would like it.

My take on the book

This book is a boon to parents who love to keep their kids creatively engaged either in solo or in group activities thus ensuring that they are learning and evolving as they grow. The beauty of the book is simplistic explanation of every single DIY which the kids can read themselves and invent ways to either replicate the craft or innovate and do something similar or alike. 

What I also loved is most of the crafts are worthy examples of best out of waste and can be made out of trash lying at home at zero investment and teaches kids value of money. To convert a shoe box into a doll house was a fantastic idea to help the kids remove all the clutter at home with their toys. It made the mom in me smile, no other better way to get them clean up. This proves that the author is indeed a smart mum. 

The fact that alternate ways of doing a craft are mentioned gave us readers great flexibility in terms of getting the requisites ready for the DIY.

At the end of each chapter, the benefits of that particular activity are explained to help one acquire deep knowledge of engaging and investing his or her time making something.

The variety in the book is worth talking about as it includes almost everything from nature inspired crafts to group activities both at family and school level to kids learning selfcare by doing DIYs. 

Images of Author’s daughter doing the crafts have been an icing on the cake and very motivating for the little kids to do it by their own hands.

You can pick any chapter in the book and it will leave you inspired and make you and your little precious sweethearts learn something new and enrich you an ounce further. Isn’t it worthy. We absolutely loved it and still play with the soap water bubbles we learnt to make  from this book!

Language and Narration 

Author’s language and narration are ideal for all age groups to comprehend the activities with equal ease at first read and that’s perhaps the win of this book with a purpose.

It is an ideal handbook for parents, preschools’ teachers and art and craft lovers to have multiple ideas enlisted at a particular place.

I wish the author many more wonderful meaningful outings like this one, in coming future 😊
