With summer vacation just around the corner, new activities to keep the kids busy and entertained are always welcome, so I was hoping to see good things from Quirk Books Entertains Your Kids, a sampler of activities from 14 books from Quirk Publishing. Sadly, many of the highlighted activities were perhaps not very well chosen. Let me tell you about a few of them.

The first activity in the book is Robot Bites from Noodlemania!: 50 Playful Pasta Recipes. The robots are cute enough, but the "recipe" calls for 1 bag of Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese, which includes a package of bread crumbs you are instructed to discard. Too bad you didn't save those breadcrumbs though, because in step two, you'll need a cup of bread crumbs! While the robots are somewhat amusing, if that is the sort of thing you want to teach children to "cook", this seems rather wasteful to me.

Some of these activities are dangerous - dangerous to the child, dangerous to the bystanders and perhaps even dangerous to the house. Case in point - Futaleufú Mattress Rafting from The Art of Roughhousing. In this activity you are instructed to grab a toddler mattress, twin mattress or tumbling mat, place it at the top of the staircase, jump on the mattress with your child and push off. Talk about a disaster in the making! You'll ruin the mattress and might very well damage the stair railing or the wall. Injuries on landing are a distinct possibility.

The information given on this book built the book up. Only it fell short by a BUNCH. Was not really to my thinking of how it was going to be

I enjoy this and look into for a little inspiration when my kids complain that they have nothing to do or that they want something different to do. I likt all the things and am happy that they are simple and easy and not at all complicated.

Lots of good ideas. This book lists a bunch of unexpected ideas to keep kids entertained and it refreshing to add some new ideas to the mix.

Teaching kids to slide down stairs, throw punches or how to fake slap are not what I would consider entertainment! The recipes are the only reason this got 2 stars instead of 1

I didn't find much that I'd actually be able to get my children to be excited about doing but this is a free book so I gave it 3 stars. I would have been very disappointed if I had paid for this book.
