A companion to Family Fun Parties: 100 Party Plans for Birthdays, Holidays & Every Day, Family Fun Boredom Busters: 365 Games, Crafts & Activities for Every Day of the Year, ed. by Deanna Cook and the staff of Family Fun magazine helps while away the hours. Grouped by category (Backyard Games, Rainy-Day Play, Brain Boosters, etc.), the activities (spiral-bound inside a hardcover casing) include playing a game of Octopus Tag (#66, "a cross between red rover and tag"), staging an "Indoor Camp-Out" (#118) and performing an "Amazing Eggs-periment" (#324), which uses the laws of physics to stuff a hard-boiled egg through the neck of a milk bottle.
