To kick off the new year…I just had to share the news on my upcoming book. Becoming a published author is a dream come true and I am super excited to share this experience with you. So get ready…because Boredom Busters by Caroline Fernandez is coming to a book store near you!
50+ activities to entertain kids at home, in the classroom and even on holiday! Let’s get crafty! You will 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 shows 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 own bowling game, turn a baby food jar into a snow globe and make cinnamon clay decorations. You will love the cool experiments 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 the great recipes in Food Activities: cool ice cream cone cupcakes, delicious chocolate mug cake and colourful pizza faces. Finally, discover ways to keep yourself busy on journeys and holidays in Travel Activities, such as making a T-shirt pillow, wooden spoon puppets and a homemade travel journal.
The activities all use simple materials easily found around the home and classroom.
Many projects are eco-friendly, encouraging children to recycle and reuse. “Guess What” fact sidebars incorporate added-value learning…but sshhh…don’t tell the kids ;-).
Guys, I am so EXCITED!
