Get both the New Testament and Book of Mormon Aqua Brush Magic Color-With-Water Activity books for the best savings.
We created these activity book especially to help children quietly engage with the scriptures on their level so both parent and child have a better chance to learn about the gospel during church meetings. That being said, you will want to take this everywhere: in the car, on the airplane, to the doctor's office, or anywhere else you need to entertain your child.
GOSPEL LEARNING: Each book is designed to engage kids with the scriptures in four ways. First they paint the scripture scene, then they find the hidden images. As they grow older they can also read about the story and ponder the questions to build understanding. Spiritually, this is a great, mess-free, activity best for kids from 3 to 5 years old.
3 WAYS TO DEVELOP YOUNG MINDS:
1. Practice Fine Motor Skills while painting over and over
2. Develop Cognitive Skills to find hidden pictures
3. Use Verbal Skills to process questions about each scene
EASY TO USE: The chunky Aqua Brush is easy to fill with just a little bit of water so your child can paint with water.
NO MESS: Forget the messy markers, crayons, pens and pencils that fall everywhere and ruin your furniture. With this book all you need is your Aqua Brush that is included and a little bit of water to paint these magical gospel scenes.
REUSABLE: Paint each scene with water, let it dry, and then paint again for endless fun.
DESIGNED TO TRAVEL: The compact size makes it easy to include in a purse, backpack or diaper bag. Use a water bottle or drinking fountain to fill the Aqua Brush, and your artist is ready to go.
BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATIONS: Each scene was especially created to engage young minds with bright colors, surprising hidden things, and fun characters.
This is a must have in every mama’s to-go bag.
My grandchildren were so quiet at sacrament meeting when I gave them these for Easter.
I got the New Testament and BoM books. My daughter loves them, and I was surprised at how brightly the pictures come through. The pens don’t seem to leak water, which I’m very grateful for.
However, after the first use, you can *slightly* see the image at all times, and it gets more and more visible as time goes on. Also, when pushing down a little too hard with the brush, my daughter ended up scratching the page, which reveals the picture underneath. I wish there had been a warning about the fragility of the top layer, so I could have warned her to be gentle.
Overall, it’s very cute, and the flaws are understandable. But not something I will be purchasing again.
Katie! We are sorry your experience was not more positive, but I think what you mentioned here is valuable. Your concerns with the 'disappearing' white layer being easy to scratch has been our experience with other brands as well. And we have taken note that we can help parents be more aware. Hopefully this review will help with that awareness. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
I got the Book of Mormon and New Testament books for my son's Easter basket. Too bad only one made it into the basket but we couldn’t wait to open at least one! This is his favorite activity right now and I can’t wait to take it to church as a quiet activity. When he first tried it out he pushed too hard and scratched some of the white off the page, so we had to learn to be gentle :) Customer service is prompt and wonderful. Don’t hesitate, these are great!
We have not used it yet. It is a Christmas gift for our grandkids
These are gifts and I do not know how they performed.
