Keeping the Little Blighters Busy

Rating
Bursting with ingenious, inspiring, refreshingly different ideas that parents will enjoy as much as their kids! Does the idea of making a crocodile out of an egg box or fairy cakes with smiley faces leave you cold? Does the thought of another trip to the soft play centre or the swimming pool with a wave machine make you groan? Then this is the book for you! With 50 unique ideas for parents of children age 3 to 13 (and way beyond!) this book will energize your family life and engage your children's heads, hands and hearts. Take them on a Straight Line Walk or set them a Supermarket challenge. Try Lucky Dip Cookery or Pin in a Map Sketching. Turn even everyday routines like hair washing or laying the table into mini-adventures. Tried and tested on real children, these ideas encourage a sense of exploration, accomplishment, challenge, creativity, boldness and ouside-the-box thinking. They'll cost you nothing - or next-to-nothing. All you need is a playful attitude, a sense of adventure and perhaps just a tiny hint of mischief here and there!

Promotional Information

About the Author

Claire Potter is a freelance educational writer and mother to two wildly different creatures: a big, robust, outdoorsy, challenge-seeking boy (who left to his own devices would probably attempt to scale a 10-storey building with a piece of elastic and an old nail) and a much younger, calm, creative, home-loving girl (who could create an entire pink fluffy world with a pot of a nail varnish and some bird feathers). Pulled in both directions, Claire loves to scour her brain, her home and the outside world for ideas that lead to mini-adventures and (good) mischief to get up to with - and occasionally without! - her children. She blogs at www.thequirkyparent.blogspot.co.uk

Reviews

Practical and down-to-earth, you don't need to spend a fortune or go far afield to have a huge amount of fun. And it doesn't end with the book, because it will inspire adults and children to think outside the box and use their imaginations. Unexpectedly, it's a very funny read too. Don't worry about keeping the children amused any more! * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
