This kit presents dozens of creative and unusual ways for kids to keep themselves entertained and engrossed no matter where they are. The materials included—4 colored markers, card-stock paper and “puzzle paper” perforated into puzzle pieces that can be broken apart, origami paper, jeweled chips, and magnetic tape—may sound ordinary, but it’s Lithgow’s extraordinary ideas for using them that make this kit a real winner!

Sculpt a racing seagull from chenille sticks! Make a puzzle only you can solve! Tons of ingenious and inspired brainstorms will soon have kids everywhere saying, “It’s not just an idea, it’s a palooza of an idea.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
John Lithgow prescribes his Paloozas!, part of his Boredom Blasters series, to raise goosebumps, chase away rainy-day doldrums and while away the miles. Each of his three titles comes with a ring-bound activity book attached to a treasure chest of goodies with nearly everything needed to carry out the projects. The Halloween Edition comes with plastic spiders, googley eyes, markers and much more; projects include everything from designing a flip book (a blank one is included) to crafting a gargoyle and fashioning a mustache as part of a costume (he suggests a host of costume ideas). Rainy Day Edition boasts poem starters, origami step-by-step projects (paper included) and a 3-D family tree model. Travel Edition offers fun-on-the-go, with laminated paper and erasable markers for repeated use, ideas for saving souvenirs of the journey, and song-related festivities. Readers have no excuse not to take their good time with them. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
