Book Review - 100 Screen Free Ways to Beat Boredom!

100 Screen Free Ways to Beat Boredom!

About the Book
There's a whole great big world outside—so unplug and let's get out there!

This book will help free you and your kids from the tyranny of the screen with 100 ways to beat the "I'm Bored" monster. You don't need lots of special materials, expensive toys, or planning to have a great time sans screens when you learn how to:

Have an Indoor Picnic
Start an Herb Garden
Go on a Car Scavenger Hunt
Build an Obstacle Course
Make Napkin Roses
Create an Artful Sandwich, and lots more.

Each project includes step-by-step instructions as well as a list of materials you'll need. With activities for cooking, crafts, gardening, and games, you'll have the perfect resource to keep kids active, engaged, and interacting with (gasp) PARENTS! So go ahead and get those kids off the couch, away from the game console, and off their phones. You'll all be glad you did!

My Take on the Book
I loved this book. Teachers, parents, grandparents, babysitters, and caregivers will find 100 activities, games, and planned events that will keep your child entertained and happy . I loved the premise that your child can have fun without a phone, I-Pod or I-Pad, computer, TV, movie or any other electronic devise. The activities are creative and interactive with others. Most of the activities use simple materials that you might have around your house now or can be found easily in a store.

A few examples are:
  • Making creative sandwiches for snack or lunch
  • Make giant string art outside with sticks and string/yarn
  • Create a fashion show with friends
  • Create an alien hat out of aluminum foil
There is also a section of games that can be played while riding in the car.

I feel this is a wonderful resource for adults and their children.
