Product Description

Remember the games you used to play when you were a kid? Capture the Flag; Hopscotch; Four-Square; Hide-and-Seek; Duck, Duck, Goose!; Red Rover; Red Light, Green Light . . . Do you remember making jewelry and musical instruments from paper plates and macaroni, paper airplanes, forts in your living room, and obstacle courses in your backyard? One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is that good old-fashioned, wholesome kind of play. Not only is it still one of the main ways children develop mental, social, and physical skills, but it also forms the stuff of nostalgia---of good memories of a full and rich childhood. Despite the flashy bells and whistles of modern electronic toys and children's television programming and their appearance of advancement, they just can't compete---the best thing for kids is still the same stuff that you grew up with. Who grows up to cherish memories of hours spent at the computer, in front of the television, or with a talking electronic toy? It's memories of building couch-cushion forts with family or friends, camping out in the backyard . . . And weren't the best toys the ones you made yourself from stuff you found around the house and made "real" with your imagination back in the days before parents could buy their kids little plastic replicas that leave nothing at all to add or imagine? Unplugged Play is a treasure-trove of "oldies but goodies" that will help you give your child the best that childhood has to offer. (It makes a great gift for new parents, too!)

    Recommend this book for creative ideas for kid fun. The book is laid out in a very simple, easy format - not chapter, paragraph style, but more like a cookbook filled with lots of recipes for fun. The book is quite thick. It's for ages 1-10, and is sectioned by age group, then divided into solo play, party games, crafts, parent/child, outdoor, etc. There are even parent ideas to help kids play better. I bought it for my 7 year old's birthday, more for ideas for me for winter playtime. But he got his hands on it and had fun sticky-noting the ideas he liked himself. Kid tested, mother approved. ;)

    This book is packed with great ideas for keeping kids busy. There are a lot of games for indoors and out and most of them use things you already have on hand at home. It is divided by age category but I have found that most of the games are good for all ages. I have six children and we are very active in our homeschool group. Using this book I have been able to arrange several activities for large groups of kids outdoors. I even took it camping with us in hopes of keeping the children engaged in games there. Love love love this book!
