Though it's not out until the 17th August it'll still be out in just enough time to stave off those moans and cries of "We're bored! What can we do?" when parents normally (guiltily) have to resort to digging out the tablets, computers or videogames consoles or being glued to the TV just to get a couple of hours of respite.
Kris and Elisa have curated a superb set of 100 activities that can mostly be derived from things you'll have lying around, and though some do require adult supervision there are still stacks here that kids can get on with themselves.
Suitable for indoors and outdoors types (essential with the kind of weird weather we've been having, particularly last weekend when we saw just about all the seasons in the space of a few hours at one point bar snow and ice!) there's plenty to be getting on with and it's all immensely fun and engaging too!
|SNOWMEN? In summer? Well why not, if it's good enough for Olaf it's good enough for these guys!|
|Put on a play, challenge yourself for one minute, or come up with a cool bit of improv.|
|Who doesn't love a bit of ice-cream? Or chocolate? Or both?|
C's best activity: All of the awesome recipes in here that indulged her sweet tooth.
Daddy's favourite activity: Firestarting!!
"100 Screen Free Ways to Beat Boredom" by Kris Hirschmann and Elisa Paganelli is out on 17th August 2018, published by QED / Quarto (kindly supplied for review).
