Keeping the Little Blighters Busy

by Claire Potter

Keeping the Little Blighters Busy Synopsis

Bursting with ingenious, inspiring, refreshingly different ideas that parents will enjoy as much as their kids! Does the idea of making a crocodile out of an egg box or fairy cakes with smiley faces leave you cold? Does the thought of another trip to the soft play centre or the swimming pool with a wave machine make you groan? Then this is the book for you! With 50 unique ideas for parents of children age 3 to 13 (and way beyond!) this book will energize your family life and engage your children's heads, hands and hearts. Take them on a Straight Line Walk or set them a Supermarket challenge. Try Lucky Dip Cookery or Pin in a Map Sketching. Turn even everyday routines like hair washing or laying the table into mini-adventures. Tried and tested on real children, these ideas encourage a sense of exploration, accomplishment, challenge, creativity, boldness and ouside-the-box thinking. They'll cost you nothing - or next-to-nothing. All you need is a playful attitude, a sense of adventure and perhaps just a tiny hint of mischief here and there!

Keeping the Little Blighters Busy Press Reviews

Practical and down-to-earth, you don't need to spend a fortune or go far afield to have a huge amount of fun. And it doesn't end with the book, because it will inspire adults and children to think outside the box and use their imaginations. Unexpectedly, it's a very funny read too. Don't worry about keeping the children amused any more! * *
