There’s a whole great big world outside—so unplug and let’s get out there! This book will help free you and your kids from the tyranny of the screen with 100 ways to beat the “I’m Bored” monster. You don’t need lots of special materials, expensive toys, or planning to have a great time sans screens when you learn how to:

  • Have an Indoor Picnic

  • Go on a Car Scavenger Hunt
  • Build an Obstacle Course

  • Create an Artful Sandwich, and lots more.

Each project includes step-by-step instructions as well as a list of materials you’ll need. With activities for cooking, crafts, gardening, and games, you’ll have the perfect resource to keep kids active, engaged, and interacting with (gasp) PARENTS! So go ahead and get those kids off the couch, away from the game console, and off their phones. You’ll all be glad you did! (Ages 7-10)

In Emilee’s opinion:

In this book, there were three sections including “beat boredom at home”, “beat boredom outdoors” and “beat boredom on the move”. Since we are going on vacation soon, I went straight to the “beat boredom on the move” section. I loved most of the ideas especially the snack pack, mystery grab bags, the very interesting idea, stories by the sentence, and travel bingo. I also took a photo of the napkin roses for something they could do at a restaurant. That way, if I don’t have the book with me, I could pull out my phone (which I have next to me at all times). We’ve actually played, “Would you rather” so it didn’t surprise me that it was included. There were tons of ideas, tips, and fun ways to bit the boredom. Overall, this book would be perfect for your summer vacations especially when all the kids are home. And it would be perfect for car rides so there is less screen time and more family time. I definitely recommend this book!
