The book is in four easy to read sections : Boredom Busters, Crafts, Games and Simple Science. It didn't take long for us to have a list going of ideas we want to try this summer. Personally , I can't wait to make the Baggie Maze (on page 10) I think this will be great to keep my son entertained on our upcoming road trip . The Shrinking Cup Flower Sculptures (on page 91) made my list also. My son picked out the DIY Straw Building Set found on page 16 , The Grape Structures on page 22 and the Catapult Competition on page 114. We're going to busy I think .
Each activity has a list of materials, and tips. Then simple to follow instructions and don't forget great illustrations. I love that Holly Homer and Rachel Miller included modifications for every activity in the book to make activities adaptable for both younger and older kids. This makes it very usable for families who have more than one age set in the family (like mine) .
The first Activity we tried was found in the Games Chapter of 101 Kids Activities. Catapult Competition found on page (114 and 115) . The Competition would be a fun way to play together or with a group. It was just C and I and we did it a little bit different than the book suggest. My son had so much fun with the catapult he was playing with again the next day. I'd say that is definitely SUCCESS!
