Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

As moms, Homer and Mitchell, creators of the popular Kids Activities blog, have dealt with the age-old childhood quandary of what to do when the kids are bored and restless. Their creative approach includes craft, sensory exploration, and science projects using household products, recycled materials, and other readily available supplies. The projects offered here range from messy creative fun (paint made with shaving cream, splatter painting with rubber bands and tempera paint) to creative recycling (cute "bangles" made from cut-up water bottles, crayons crafted from empty glue stick tubes and melted broken crayons) to puzzles and games (four square, red light/green light). The exercises are most appropriate for school-age children, but the authors provide adaptations for preschoolers and older children as well. VERDICT Parents and caregivers will enjoy the bounty of simple, low-cost creative activities, perfect for weekends or no-school days.

This book is everything you need for a very fun summer (and longer) with kids of any age.  The ideas are practical, easy to follow, and fun. Suggestions are provided on how to use the ideas with different age groups to make them more or less complex.  The materials are ones you probably have around the house or can easily and inexpensively obtain. Children can look at the beautiful full color photos and select activities they might like to try.  This would be great for babysitters or extended family to try when relatives visit.
