More About the Author

I am a happy homemaker living in a quiet New England town, married to my college sweetheart and a mother of two great boys! I have always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom or a house mommy. I know that sounds very old fashioned and most women nowadays would think I was crazy.

At one time, I did have a job and an identity other than Mom. I taught kindergarten for a while and loved it, but that was before I had kids. Once my two sons were born, all I wanted to do was stay home with them and be the best mom and wife that I could be. That was my passion and still is even though they are now 10 and 13 years old.

I know being a homemaker is sadly becoming a thing of the past, but whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, I think there are things we all can do to make the most of your time with your family.

Stop by and visit me at HouseMommy.com, my blog about parenting, homemaking and cooking!

I picked up this book in an effort to find some fun projects for my two sons and I am very glad that I did. The first hundred and forty-nine projects are divided by seasons, starting with spring. They are split pretty evenly with 37 spring projects, 42 autumn projects, 35 summer projects, and 35 winter projects. The rest of the projects are for "anytime."

Projects range from artistic tasks like creating a comic book and crafts like building a lava lamp to games, events, or activities. I hope that most people already understand that every single project may not be possible for every family, but I certainly saw a number of projects that I am looking forward to doing with my family.

Highly recommended for parents who want extra ideas for creative outlets for their children!

Too many kids are glued to the TV (the NY Daily News reported children 2-11 watch an average of 3.5 hours per day.) Others are addicted to video games. I was excited to see this compilation of alternatives - fun things any adult can do with any child - boy or girl, special needs, from toddlers on up. The book offers a great mix of ideas, from games, to outdoor adventures, to baking together. Most require few, if any, supplies; supplies you do need can be found around the typical household. The author - a stay-at-home mom who was formerly kindergarten teacher - offers just the right amount of information to get you going. I enjoyed the writing style - light, breezy and sprinkled with funny comments.

Some of the suggested activities can be done by the child alone, some can be guided, and others can be a shared experience. I can't wait to try some of the creative ideas, and will be giving this ebook as a gift to some struggling parents I know.

(PS I did buy this book - not sure why it doesn't show up as a verified purchase)

I was looking for activities to do with my grandchildren while on vacation. This book is filled with great ideas for all ages. I probably would have thought of a few of these, but there are many that I know we will try just because they are in this book. I like that they are arranged br season since it will be winter when I visit. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas!

There is a wonderful list of things to do when the kids say "I'm bored" Sometimes My response of "clean this" doesn't go over as well. :)
