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!

As a full time working mum who is not very creative - I can say that this e-book is a real life saver.
It gave me a lot of ideas (and no, even the simple ones, I wouldn't be able to do without guidance, and I would certainly not even think of them. Shadow puppet show anyone?)

Each tip is numbered and relevant links are provided (it inspired me to clip everything into my evernote and start a collection of ideas I can do with my son in our free time)
I love this.

Also, at the end of the book the author provided a link to the PDF sheet which lists all the 201 tips - and this is a really useful reminder. Thank you.

I downloaded this on my Kindle, but ended up reading it on my Kindle for PC so I could refer to the links right away.

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!

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)

Great ideas. Sometimes I forget how little it actually takes to make my monkey happy. As long as we are together he is happy! I'm the one that tends to forget. Thanks for the reminder that it doesn't take a lot to have a great time with my three year old. :)

that kids need constant attention. If you don't do things with them, they think you're a jerk who only gave birth because everybody told you to. You have to pay attention to your kid. Otherwise, they think you're their nanny.

This book is EXACTLY what kids and parents need today. Karen (the author) put together an educational fun filled journey for generations to enjoy and learn. They say it takes a village but it starts in the home. As I was reading the book, I was taken back to my childhood memories and how much I really enjoyed being a kid. Now with a son of our own 14 month old Ryan, I have an AWESOME resource guide to share, learn and love together as a family. Do you remember "red light, green light", treasure hunts, making sand art, and a suggestion "mud pies"? I do. They are not found staring at a T.V. or playing a video game. Additionally, I really enjoyed and learned the history behind so many of the traditions we shared throughout the years, for example "Advent calender" ( look in the book under the Winter section). I had not thought about that activity I used to do with my grandmother since I was in grade school. We used to open up each day in the calender together leading up to Christmas. The book in a way traced my childhood and the love of my family, playing chess with my father, apple picking with the whole family and then eating homemade apple pie together, playing with other kids in the sprinklers, Christmas light tours, to name a few, yet her book also encourages the reader to restart your imagination. If you are looking for a lifetime resource guide to interact, nurture and create a loving family by exploring your world around you by sharing and creating a lifetime of memories... this is the book to buy. Thank you!House Mommy's Boredom Busters - 201 Fun Things to Do With Kids!
