More Boredom Busters - Book Review

Making The Most Of March Break

Caroline Fernandez has created a follow up to her Boredom Busters book.  2015 brings More Boredom Busters to the bookshelves with over 50 activities for kids age 7 and up! With March Break this week, the timing is perfect!

What You Will Like About It

Many of the activities in the book use items that can be found in most households. From empty yogurt containers to toilet paper rolls your family will be able to upcycle many of the items that would end up in your recycle bin.  For the extra crafting items you need for the activity, I would guess you could find a lot of things your need at the local dollar store. 

Also the book is set up by season so it can be used as a learning tool to teach about special occasions. Think of all the artistic "Make Ahead" gifts you could be making too!

Here is an example of a spring art craft to make for Mother's Day.

Plus the you don't have to worry about bookmarking all the pages.  The index in the back is designed to be very helpful to see a quick list of what project you might be interested in creating.

What Will You Make?

Do you have some creative "makers" in your home? Or perhaps you are looking to let your inner "crafter" out. Let us know in the comments what you like to craft at home.  Need some inspiration? For ideas we suggest heading out to grab More Boredom Busters! Perhaps you can get it when you head to the Chapters Waterloo March Break events this week!
