Living through a bitter winter this year has left us trapped inside most days. Between bad weather and chilling temperatures, winter has been better behind a window. Being inside we have heard the words "I'm bored" more than once or twice. With a room full of toys, games and so much more, we wonder how on earth the kids could possibly be bored! 

You can find some ways to keep everyone entertained by using their imaginations and ideas from Caroline Fernandez brand new book called "Boredom Busters"!

Let's get crafty! Never be bored again with the brilliant things to make and do in Boredom Busters! The book is divided into five themed chapters: Art, Craft, Science, Food and Travel. Art activities teach you how to create pretty pictures using homemade paint, recycled crayons, and even coffee filter paper and shaving cream! In Craft Activities, reuse milk cartons for your very own bowling game, turn baby food jars into snow globes, and create cinnamon clay decorations. Your little scientist will love the experiements in the Science section - from growing your own crystals to setting off plastic bottle tornados and creating lava in a cup! Cook up a storm with great recipes found in Food Activities: cool ice cream cone cupcakes, delicious chocolate mug cake, and colourful pizza faces. Finally, discover ways to keep them busy during journeys and holidays with Travel Activities, such as making a T-shirt pillow, wooden spoon puppets and homemade travel journal. 

I am one of the least crafty moms I know. I should hang my head in shame but with great books like "Boredom Busters" I can find cool ideas everyone will be happy with!
