ABOUT THE AUTHOR, HOLLY HOMER, {from her Amazon Author Page}:

Hi, I am Holly. I am the mom of three boys. Three very active boys. I live with my husband and kids in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas.

I write Kids Activities Blog - http://kidsactivitiesblog.com & run the Quirky Momma FB page - http://facebook.com/quirkymomma about fun things to do with kids. My philosophy is that there is no need to spend money on kids crafts and activities when there are perfectly entertaining things to be made from the kitchen junk drawer.

Early on in my parenting journey, I realized that kid energy can turn to trouble when not exhausted in a constructive manner! I pulled from my experience as a Physical Therapist to find, create and direct ways to actively wear out my boys while having fun.

Play is an important part of our lives. Favorite family time activities are a trip to grandma & grandpa's house to visit the tree house and zipline, a day on the slopes skiing together, attending a Ranger game or a competitive evening of board games.
Life has been full of adventure so far, I can't wait to see what happens next...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR, RACHEL MILLER, {from her Amazon Author Page}:

Rachel Miller is a lifetime learner and educator. She is a specialist in non-traditional learning techniques and has taught classes in history, sociology, as well as integrated STEM classes for grades K-8, using only common office supplies. She is a mom to a van-full whose favorite moments are exploring the world hands-on with her kids. She is the creator of the website and Facebook Community, QuirkyMomma, and can also be found on her blog, One Crazy House.

MY THOUGHTS:

This is a fun book for teachers, youth group and scout leaders, moms/dads/grandparents, day care providers, and anyone else who wants to have some fun making projects and then playing with them!

These clever projects utilize basic household items, recyclables, and some inexpensive items you may have to purchase at the store. The book is divided into four chapters. Photos are good, although there is not a photo provided for every single project. The games and science experiments provided are age appropriate and interesting.

I borrowed this book from our local library's 'New Books' shelf. Highly recommended for adults in charge of 'facilitating' some organized playtime for kids.

  3. I loved activity books as a kid and as a parent. Nothing more fun than finding clever activities for kid's birthday parties, holidays and rainy days. This sounds wonderful. And I loved making Easter egg trees with hand-painted eggs!
