I sometimes feel like I spend to much time online and not enough doing stuff with my kids, I was thrilled to be able to review this book. It's full of ideas that get you away from your computer for even a little while. I like that is offers different categories such as...
Arts & Crafts
Get 'em Moving
In the Kitchen
Math and Number
Older Kids Play
On The Road
While We're waiting
Younger Kids At Play
Your Time Only
to be honest we have been so busy I just finished this book last week, I really wish I would have read it sooner, might have greatly helped me, when I spent 12 hours straight in the car with my 3 darling children, from Michigan to New York, and 12 more hours from New York to Michigan. Plus the ideas are very creative, and inventive. Each activity also lists what you will need, weather it be materials for crafts or just simply your time.
I would say it's defiantly worth the read and maybe something to keep around for a reference guide in case you forget and need ideas.
