I saw this review by Parent Magazine and I pulled the trigger. My copy came in the mail yesterday (thanks !) 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
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 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.
This is the book we have been waiting for. Its so full of practical, easy to do ideas. My grandchildren just love going through the book, page after page, trying to decide which one to do next. Love the pictures of the children demonstrating the activities.
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!
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!
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'm sure there are plenty of things in here that some kids would enjoy, but I only found one that I would be willing to do. Lots of messy things and things that are geared toward older kids- I was looking for things to do with a 3 year old. Probably be good for groups of kids.
