Summer fun with Skylanders

The letterbox tinkled with exciting post, the boys have received a lovely summers gift from Skylanders, an activity pack to keep them entertained through the summer holidays.

Within the package of goodies was:

  • 6 Packs of Skylanders giants Stickers (which have been stuck all over the boys bedroom rather than in the sticker book )
  • 1 collectable Dog tag
  • 1 back to school wipe clean calendar for the month of September
  • 1 Summer Holiday Fun Activity Pack
  • 1 Drawstring backpack

Joseph couldn’t wait to put on his Dog tag, he got Terrafin! There are 44 tags to collect which includes 6 of the Giant Skylander Characters.

The Summer Fun Activity pack has 5 pages of fun puzzles and activities to do including a word search, spot the difference, a maze and match the skylander picture to its name. Joseph did really well with matching the skylanders up to their names but he got a bit lost on the maze lol so Mummy had to help out 😉 Within the activity pack their is also a page where you can draw your favourite character. Joseph drew a very colourful Chop Chop.

The boys have the calendar up on the Kitchen wall with dates that they need to remember clearly marked on it, as the month goes on i am sure that this will be full up.

Some activity ideas in the pack to keep the children entertained were:

  • Story telling time – Take it in turns with a friend to read a chapter of your Skylanders book out loud, get creative with different voices for each character
  • Stargazing – On a clear night, see what constellations you can spot – are there any that look like Skylanders Characters? Or on a cloudy day you can do what the boys do and see if they can see characters out of them
  • Hide and Seek – Hide your characters around the garden or home and see if your friends or family can find them

Our own ideas:

  • Play battle field with your Skylanders, the boys choose their own Skylander character and battle against each other using the Skylanders powers
  • Design your own Skylander and choose its powers
  • Make a Skylander out of clay or Playdough
