It’s a rainy day. Your children are “bored’ and have “nothing to do”. What do you do?

Here’s an idea that’s infinitely better than sticking your children out into the rain or in front of the computer: reach for that handy book, Boredom Busters, which you borrowed just yesterday from the public library, thinking that you might need it one of these days. In no time at all, your kids will be having fun doing one of more than fifty suggested “awesome” activities … and you’ll be having fun relaxing!

What are some of these “awesome” activities? Making milk jug monsters, plastic bottle tornadoes, “lava” in a cup, effervescent rockets, cinnamon clay decorations, cryptograms, friendship braids, wooden spoon puppets, “goo-tastic slime”, snow globes and delicious treats from the kitchen are just a few of them.

Divided into art and craft activities, science activities, just-for-kids recipes and travel projects - with plenty of variety to interest both girls and boys - the ideas in this book will encourage children to invent, recycle and reuse. All projects are easy to make and use simple, inexpensive materials found around the home.

Accompanied by clear instructions, photos and explanatory sidebars, the activities in Caroline Fernandez’s book are sure to both entertain and inform.
