1980s Bumper Activity Book: 52 Grown Up Projects That Look Back to the Future by Mel Elliot


Cannot believe we have missed this. But on the plus side, the 1980s Bumper Activity Book: 52 Grown Up Projects That Look Back to the Future by Mel Elliot is a great last minute retro gift idea.

If you know the name, it's because Mel Elliot produced the likes of the 80s Colouring Book and the Colour Me Good 90s colouring book. But this weighty book takes things much further.

It's a 144-page book packed with 52 superb retro projects. Yes, colouring in is included as you might expect, but other projects include paper dolls of 80s celebrities, Wham globe puppets, a Pong duvet cover, Space Invaders wall mural, a 3D paper De Lorean, A Pac-Man cake, slogan t-shirts, wall stencils, a cardboard 80s mobile phone…you get the idea. One project a week, seeing you through the whole of next year.

Published by Portico and available online, you can grab a copy for just £6.89.
