This is NOT your typical $3.95 bargain activity book. There are no crossword puzzles or dot-to-dots, no mazes or coloring in the lines. Instead, it’s a book designed to compete against the big doodle books on the market and come out winning. The activities are attention-grabbing and creative, and kids love them.
Sophisticated, slightly irreverent, hip (without being condescending), and attention grabbing, kids will be able to flip open to any page of this book and start writing, drawing, playing...whatever. There are activities for one palyer, games for two or more, doodle prompts that make you go "huh"?, games to play with digital cameras, science experiments you can do in the car, tricks you can learn using a dollar bill, and up to 150 more fun and engrosssing things to do that will keep parents from having to threaten to turn the car around.
Sample activity pages include "I've Got My Eye on You," where kids draw the look their parents give them in the rearview mirror depending on what's happening in the car- like "Dad got cutt off by a minivan", and Travel Back in Time with Slang Game, " where kids have to match the expression with the decade in which it was popular-and much more!
