It must be a good book when the 8 year old insists on keeping it in her bed while she's sleeping! We've done a number of the activities and they are quite fun, and interesting, but easy. It certainly is inspiring their imagination. Love it. Great birthday present. We found more stuff online too, and [...] (like make your own (temp) tattoos).

I have an eleven year old daughter and I am finding it harder to find things we can do together. I was so pleased when I saw her thumbing through "Show Off" and she was excited to show me all the cool things we could do right at home. We jumped from project to project and they were fun and easy to follow. It got her creative juices going and we had a blast together. In fact as I write this review we are waiting for celery to suck up colored water. This book is fun, creative and gives you a chance to experiment with your kids and enjoy a day at home!

I found this book while reading Bethany Mann's entertaining "Bitter Betty" blog. I gave copies to a 10 year old boy and girl, and an eleven year old boy and girl. All of the parents reported that the kids loved it and completely enjoyed the activities. I personally would really like to try some of the crafts. There are physical activities, science projects, etc. so there is something for any interest.

I don't have children so I was happy to have found a popular, age-appropriate gift to send them. I even included a personal message to each child using the pencil paper ribbon decoder listed in the book!

I bought both "show me how everything" books and when I bought this one I found a lot of things featured were things that were copied from the other books. But in saying this I don't regret buying it because it also has a lot of new great things like making candy sushi. Which I have tried and it's awesome.I recommend this only if you don't already have show me how to do everything books.

This book definitely gives you a lot of guidelines for doing all kinds of stuff. From physical activities to baking this book's got you covered. If you want to try something new that's not your everyday activity give this a try. I hadn't even considered some of the cool activities in this book.

My daughter got this when she was 10. She calls it "The Awesomely Awesome Book of Awesomeness" and I have to agree. When she's bored she usually finds something to do in it (and makes a pretty big mess). It's increased her interest in science, engineering and architecture, which can't be bad. Sometimes the projects don't turn out as advertised, but it's part of the learning process. For example, the speakers made from cereal boxes and greeting cards: the ear buds we found had interior wires that were more advanced than those in the book and couldn't be used. Still...a great gift for all kids 10 and up.

This is a highly engaging activity book for kids. I was surprised to see my son pouring over the content and experimenting with the activities, and for a change not playing computer games/watching TV!
