Let's get crafty! You will never be bored again with the brilliant things to make and do in Boredom Busters. The book is divided into five themed chapters: Art, Craft, Science, Food, and Travel. Art Activities shows you how to create pretty pictures using homemade paint, recycled crayons, and even coffee filter paper and shaving cream! In Craft Activities, reuse milk cartons for your own bowling game, turn a baby food jar into a snow globe, and make cinnamon clay decorations. You will love the cool experiments in the Science section--from growing your own crystals to setting off plastic bottle tornados and creating "lava" in a cup. Cook up a storm with the great recipes in Food Activities: cool ice cream cone cupcakes, delicious chocolate mug cake, and colorful pizza faces. Finally, discover ways to keep yourself busy on journeys and holidays in Travel Activities, such as making a T-shirt pillow, wooden spoon puppets, and homemade travel journal.

This is a great book for all ages! It is great for days when you are stuck inside or just want to craft. So many different ideas from recyclable, tape, food, clothes, science experiments. My daughter has a list of crafts that she wants to do out of this book. One day she was bored and stuck inside due to the cold and she grabbed a egg carton out of the recycling and made the cute Egg Carton Creature. She did it all by herself! The food and science ones are tops on my list but all the crafts will be fun for the kids and teach them different skills. Great way to keep the kids busy and most of the crafts require stuff that is already around the house or inexpensive to buy.
My daughter has a new blog that she is posting her crafts, baking, etc on and has posted about this craft book on Abbygale's Creations.
