Smithsonian Interactive Books and Activity Kits for Kids {#SummerSweeping Giveaway Hop, Ends 7/17}

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.
 
The Smithsonian is one of the coolest places on Earth. We traveled to D.C. the year before our daughter was born and it was awesome. Now, the WOW factor of this amazing museum is now available via interactive books and activity kits - perfect for chasing away those summer boredom blues.
 

The Smithsonian Sticker Creations line (ages 6+) – Dinosaurs and Under the Sea – engage young readers with an innovative, hands-on approach to learning. Each book presents fun facts about dinosaurs and sea creatures in a child-friendly manner, backed up by the experts at the Smithsonian, and comes with more than 175 reusable stickers plus 5 oversized 3-D stickers, and a pull-out framed play scene, allowing children to create their own prehistoric dinosaur scene or ocean floor adventure.

The Smithsonian Everything You Need to Know Fact Cards series, divided into Grades K-1 and Grades 2-3, is specially tailored for inquisitive minds of different ages. Each box includes 275 fact cards featuring categories that range from space to history to health, chosen to compliment the curricula for each grade level. The facts are paired with beautiful color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams that will capture young imaginations.

 
Smithsonian Young Explorers: 50 States (Ages 6+) comes packed in a sturdy travel case with an illustrated poster and a giant 130-piece floor puzzle of the United States. The alphabetically arranged fact book details state birds, animals, flowers, famous residents, and other fun trivia. My daughter recognized her state's flag after reading the book that came with this once. And she loved putting the puzzle together with her daddy.

 In Smithsonian Discover: Earth (ages 8+), young readers will learn about the amazing animals, vast oceans, and wild weather that make up the planet they call home. The comprehensive guide comes with 12 fact cards, a large two-sided poster, and a 3D paper globe for children to construct.
