Make a safe and easy costume for Halloween or the school play. All of these ideas and more are featured in Child's Play 6 -- 12, a wonderful collection of quick and easy-to-make projects, activities, and games for those not-so-easy-to-please grade schoolers whose frantic cries of "there's nothing to do! " are only slightly less unnerving than "Mom! I've got a science project due tomorrow!
