Huge waste of money ... This is for ages 7-12 and some of the ideas which are, "a kids answer to bordom" include;

Cleaning the toaster ... Oh I can see my 7 yo going for that (not)
Use rechargeable batteries .... Hmmmm
Go whale watching (if you live close to the ocean that it)
Head stands
Make popcorn

I could go on ... While there are a handful of nice ideas, on the whole this was an absolute waste of money. I would recommend a book that focuses more on science experiments for example, things to do that one wouldn't normally do.
I have the "everything kids science experiments book" by Tom Robinson and have and will continue to use it for ideas that are fun, new, and educational ....

Used this for my after school program staff. There are some good and some not so good ideas that you can choose to adjust to your program or just ignore. Some activity ideas were just added to make the 365 count, i.e. clean a toaster...
