The New Zealand Art Activity Book is a book packed with activities to encourage children to see, think and draw like artists. This wonderful book is full of engaging and inspiring ideas that will keep your children, and maybe even yourself, busy for hours.

One of the great things about The New Zealand Art Activity Book is that there are over 100 art activities inspired by Te Papa’s national art collection.

It has such a comprehensive range of New Zealand artists. From focusing on historical pieces, to the more contemporary New Zealand artists too.

This makes it an invaluable resource for arty families and schools alike.

The activity part of the book is a great range of activities ranging from simple colouring, collaging and constructing, to some more advanced painting and sketching ideas. It also has a wonderful run down of resources you might like to use on the first couple of pages.

This book would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for the up and coming art lover in your family.
