Synopsis

The Rainy Day Book by Helen Brooks

'MUUUUMMMM ...DAAADDDD ...I'm BORED!' Whether it's the weekend, half term or the summer holidays, these words will likely strike fear into any parent's heart - particularly if it's tipping it down with rain outside. Thankfully, this delightful collection is at hand, packed full of imaginative ideas that are guaranteed to inspire young minds, and maybe even remind older ones of the best bits of their own childhood. The selection not only includes simple and inexpensive ideas for science and craft activities, from making your own rocket to creating a memory box, it also gives suggestions for imaginative play, from indoor camping to pretending to be a pirate for the day. There are activities that will encourage children to learn about animals and insects, to pick up foreign languages and to find out more about their family history, and it even covers recommendations for the times when the weather isn't so bad, from leapfrog in the garden to visiting a local farm. Packed full of thoughtful and inventive ideas, The Rainy Day Book will prove an endless source of inspiration for anyone with children to entertain.
