A Bare Books Giveaway: Inspire Creativity with Blank Books & Games

Share & Comment

1801A friend introduced me to Bare Books and I have to say that I am in love. They sell all kinds of blank (or bare) items just waiting for a child's creative touch. Blank books, blank puzzles, blank calendars, and design-your-own game sets. While we've only tried the books so far, I can't wait to present my game-loving six-year-old with the game kit!

Would your kids enjoy making their own books, puzzles, or games?

Bare Books has offered one book kit and one game kit as a giveaway to one lucky reader! Here's what's included in each:

  • 1 Bare Book 6.375" x 8.125"
  • 1 Big Bare Book 8.375" x 11"
  • 1 Bare Book Line Guide
  • 1 Big Bare Book Line Guide
  • 1 Bare Book Slip-On Jacket
  • 1 Big Bare Book Slip-On Jacket
  • 1 35-piece Bare Puzzle

Readers who leave a comment to this post by Sunday, January 29th at 11:49pm EST will be entered into a random drawing for the Bare Books book kit and game kit. Winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced here on Sunday morning (I also e-mail the winner directly). This giveaway is open to readers in the United States only. Good luck! Giveaway now closed.

The random number generator gave me #263, so Amanda wins the game and book kits. Congrats!

so cute! Thanks!

The first winner chosen was a Canadian reader and this giveaway was limited to US readers, so I had to ask the random number generator for a 2nd number. It gave me #17, so Mejia wins the game and book kits. Congrats!

oohh Bare books!!! coolness!

Darn. I'm not having much luck today. Mejia didn't give an e-mail address, so I can't contact her. Third time's a charm, right? Trying again… Okay, random.org gave me #144 this time, so SoEveryDay wins. Congrats!

    My daughter would love the book kit. I had never heard of this company before, but these kits look lovely.

  2. says

    We Love Bare Books! They have a fabulous bare comic book that my daughter has really enjoyed. I’ve never seen the game kit, though. My kids would really get into that! Although, I think our game would have a lot to do with mermaids and monster trucks:-)

  3. Melissa Knight says

    how fun! i could see the blank board game as a great learning tool in the classroom as well :)

    I didn’t realize that Bare Books had game pieces. Awesome. Thanks again, I can’t wait to find out if I won.

  5. Christina says

    Great learning tools, both for home and in the classroom! Endless creativity, thanks for sharing!

  6. keira says

    My daughter’s Kindergarten class uses bare books as their classroom journals to give them more freedom when drawing (without lines). Nice thick paper. They are great!

  7. [email protected] says

    Wonderful! What a great way to spark the creativity in our children.

  8. stephanie says

    we have had blank books, and they’re amazing … thanks for the chance to try to other black stuff!

  9. kath gold says

    my son would find this spectacular!! He has been drawing & coloring as soon as I could bundle him in the high chair… years later… he is facinated by even more things. This is soo great..

  10. Moriah says

    I love barefoot books but i had no idea about the blank products! these would be so much fun!

  11. Sara R. says

    My son would love that game kit! He is constantly making up board games. And the rules are hysterical!

  12. Crystal says

    This would be perfect for my boys as I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to challenge them.

  13. Alana F says

    My daughters would love to have the opportunity to use either one of these kits! Thanks for this giveaway opportunity!

  14. Michelle Lewis says

    Ooh, my preschooler would LOVE this! We use Bare Books as journals. But to make your own game. Wow.

  15. Lori N says

    We have tried blank puzzles, but I love the idea of blank books and games. Can’t wait to try these.

  16. says

    What a fun give away! We just started using their dino book for part of our dino study, her journal/book to record her findings as we learn. She loves it!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. says

    Wow! This looks like it would be a blast for us!

  18. Ginnie says

    We love Bare Books at our house and this pack would be so fun to try out some of their other products! Thanks!

  19. persephone says

    My kids would LOVE these. We have a couple of blank book kits they got for their birthday – long since filled up – and they still go back and add details to them, then ask me to re-read them.

  20. Megan S. says

    Oh, I love Bare Books! My kids have made some wonderful creations with them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Courtney says

    These are wonderful. I love anything that inspires creativity. I wouldn’t mind doodling in one of those books right alongside my kids :)

  22. Susan says

    What a great idea! This would be perfect for my son. He is always making up his own puzzles and games.

  23. [email protected] says

    What an amazing gift this would be!

  24. says

    That is so cool! I just heard about that company last night, while attending a webinar. The speaker recommended the blank books as inexpensive ones to use for nature journaling with children and adults. Thanks for the giveaway.

  25. Tonya says

    These look really cool. My youngest got two blank puzzles for her birthday. She opened one and colored it while I was not able to assist, and didn’t really understand the best way to make it work, so the second one was set aside until she is a little older. That being said, my oldest would love all those amazing items.

  26. Gina says

    What a cool set of projects, especially the game! Very cool to have a lasting and usable product from a make-your-own :)

  27. T. Beard says

    We’ve never read a Bare Book; however, this giveaway would be a great opportunity to introduce us to them. Thank you for another wonderful giveaway.

  28. Sharon says

    What a great idea. The game kit reminds me of when I was little helping my grandmother try out her game ideas. So much fun!

  29. says

    My sweet boy LOVES blank books! He is three and he loves to “write.” He can tell a whole story with a single letter!

  30. Ann says

    These are great. Glad to hear about them. The game kit will be a wonderful present for my kids. Maybe a good summer activity.

  31. Jenny says

    This would be perfect for my daughter. She is in kindergarten and is always, always writing books that she puts together with construction paper.

  32. says

    This looks ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!! I have never seen anything like this stuff…the blank games look very fun. I favorited this site to go back to for birthday and Christmas gifts, and they are SO reasonably priced, too!
    Thanks for the great giveaways!

  34. says

    I love the dino book!

  35. says

    My son is just getting into board games and loves making up his own rules! I can just imagine how much fun he would have making up his own game!!

  36. Lisa says

    My mom and I (both teachers) have used these products for years and we love them. We find they make children feel their work (illustrations, art, writing, ideas) are so much more special when they are in a “real book.” Thank you for these give-aways. We teachers feel so supported!

  37. Kelly says

    I love the introductions to all this new stuff! I’m already thinking birthdays, and Christmas!

  38. Nancy says

    we love Bare Books. that would be an excellent package to receive. pick me! and thanks for the giveaway!

  39. Diana says

    We have some Bare Books (love them!), but we’ve never tried out the blank game — and I have no idea why not!

  40. Epiphius says

    Awesome ideas! I think I have the remnants of an Amazon box sitting around just waiting to be turned into a game board!

  41. Suzanne says

    I had barebooks at my last school and loved them unfortunately we do not have the money at this school as I believe this would help all 70 of my students to write as it is so much fun to have your own book

  42. CarinaRdz says

    What a wonderful idea! They look similar to the “Anti-Coloring” books that I have used.

  43. says

    Thanks for the give-away! My son loves his bare books and bare calendar. It would be great fun to try out one of the game kits!

  44. says

    Oh my goodness! I LOVE this company!! We have never tried the board game, but we have done plenty of their blank books! Fantastic giveaway!!

  45. Alison says

    I think I did one of those books when I was in elementary school…a very long time ago! They look fun.

  46. quratulaein awan says

    hi dear..i wana get that kit for my 2 n half yr old tot…she loves books…n colors…
    she wud love this…

  47. Jane says

    Yes! I remember making my own stories in Bare Books when I was little, they made me feel so grown up since they have the hard cover and all! So glad to see these still are out there.

  48. says

    We repurpose and upcycle games with missing pieces in our house… I think my kids would be thrilled with a completely blank game to start with!

  49. Emma says

    I remember last year SouleMama shared Bare books on her page – not as a giveaway, but as something she loved to order for her own kids. I’m excited that now there’s not only a giveaway but also a game kit. Both look like such fun open-ended learning adventures :)

  50. ashley parks says

    i had one once and made an ABC book with my kindergarten class with them as the “letters”. My daughter also used one that came as a gift for her “book” she wrote. I forgot about them but I need to look this up. ohhhhhhh i wanna win!

  51. Aj says

    Hope the winner is announced Monday morning – otherwise I missed out! Thanks for the opportunity!
