Here’s a nifty gift idea for kids this Christmas, courtesy of my friend Sana (aren’t my friends brilliant?!?): the FUN ART-ivity book!

Sana’s line of novelty products, ArteSana, encourages fun and creativity, and this book is her latest venture. The FUN ART-ivity book is a 100-page book featuring the freehand art of renowned children’s book illustrator Beth Parrocha Doctolero.

“I want kids to discover the simple joys of doodling & writing at the same time using their imagination or creativity,” Sana says. “This book taps the budding artist in every child and child-at-heart to show their creative and artistic talents.”


The FUN ART-ivity book packs 100 pages of doodling and coloring, and 100 pages of creativity and fun. It’s a great way for kids to bond with their friends, siblings, and family too!

I love this book to bits, down to the little details — the owner of the book can personalize their name on the cover, and they can draw in their picture and fill out their profile.

There are pages and pages of fun activities:

And a section on children’s rights!

The kids are having so much fun!

But wait! Here’s the best part – through your generous support in buying this book, a child living in a poor community in ATD Fourth World PhilippinesHe Cares FoundationMakabata School FoundationMuseo Pambata, or the Puerto Galera Mini Library Project will receive a FUN ART-ivity book! What a wonderful idea – if you’re giving the book as a gift, you’re making two kids happy at the same time!

The FUN ART-ivity book is available for only P200 at Papemelroti Branches and at Museo Pambata.

ArteSana is also participating in the Santa Claus Bazaar at the La Vista Clubhouse (La Vista, QC) on Dec. 11 and 12.
