5.0 out of 5 stars They really are the bestest funnest ever! June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As soon as I opened this book, I knew that this summer would be a breeze!

These activities are easy to do, quick to set up and fun for kids of all ages. (There are even several activities that have different ideas for how you can do them with different aged kids.)

We haven't put this book down. We have probably made about fifty different catapults! We're planning catapult wars next.

If you're looking for things to do with your kids that they will enjoy and you will too, then this is a great book for you!

I saw this review by Parent Magazine and I pulled the trigger. My copy came in the mail yesterday (thanks Amazon!) My husband and I looked through this book and we were BOTH impressed. I've seen a lot of craft books before and this is fresh and different but BRILLIANT because the materials are common, can be easily attained and a lot of the ideas are SIMPLE!

Some things you will be familiar with but the ones you are not familiar with that the kids can actually do independently (I have kids b/w 9-2 years old) pays for itself! I love that there are modifications for older/younger kids. I LOVE that you can even look up stuff like "plaster of paris" or "pipe cleaners" and go to an activity that involves THAT material! It makes it easy to use up left over material that you do not know what to do with.

The only suggestions for improvement are:
1) I wish the index was even more comprehensive with ingredients (i.e. "corn syrup")
2) MORE photos

5.0 out of 5 stars Your kids will thank you for buying this book! June 29, 2014
Format:Paperback
Such a wonderful book FILLED with kids activities that are easy to read and understand. Each craft has step-by-step instructions with great visuals (super helpful for busy moms like myself). My kids were so excited to flip through the book and decide which projects we would try out first. I love that the book provides several ways that the activities can be modified for different ages and ability levels (so smart!). Your KIDS will thank you for buying this book for the family!

I follow the authors on facebook and they have awesome ideas for kids on their page so I decided to buy the book. It is a good book but I was slightly disappointed that it tailors to mostly older kids. They do always have a younger modification but overall there's not a lot I can do with a 2 year old in it. However, its a great book with so many creative ideas. I would highly recommend it.

I'm a big fan of the Kids Activities Blog, so I was thrilled when I heard that Holly Homer and Rachel Miller were releasing a book. This book is fabulous! The ideas are simple, engaging for kids across a wide age range, and beautifully photographed. My kids love this book as much as I do, and I know that we will be trying several of the activities this summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what we were looking for June 23, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some of these types of books are very hit or miss with regards to the ease of activity and how long you'd keep kids' attention. This book is great and my two little ones have been very happy so far with the ideas.

I was hoping my 9 year old would enjoy doing these activities with my 5 year olds. None of them got very excited about anything. It's a nice book but didn't really do much for us.
