Seeds’ ‘Anti-Boredom’ books have proven hugely popular with kids both in the UK and here in Oz. Certainly the Christmas volume was a big hit with Miss K’s BFF as part of her Xmas gift.
I probably should have posted this review for these most recent school holidays but not every state has the glorious Queensland weather that we do so perhaps it will be a good one to keep in mind for the spring break! 😉
I think we all want our children to spend time outdoors enjoying nature and sunshine and less time with ipads and TV so this is a fantastic book for any child (or family) to have in their shelves.
As well as activities of the physical kind there are many ideas for making things related to nature – bird baths and feeders, shadow puppets etc – as well as information on stargazing, rainbows and more.
Divided into sections: Garden Fun, Things to Make, Places to Go, At the Beach, Games to Play, Winter Fun and Activity Challenges, there is something for everyone, with some further information on useful books and websites to finish it off.
Great stuff for readers from around 8 years upwards as well as families looking to expand their outdoor interests.
