Make a Chinese dragon out of an old sheet, create a magician's potion to astound your friends, design and decorate your own party invitations or build a dinosaur out of chicken bones. These are just a few of the many zany and totally fun ideas in The Anti-Boredom Book, written by the editors of the award-winning Owl and Chickadee magazines (the people who know how to spell F-U-N!) Dazzling magic tricks, innovative crafts, entertaining puzzles, great games, fascinating facts and tasty treats abound in this entertaining collection. A perfect solution to the ever-present complaint that 'there's nothing to do,' The Anti-Boredom Book has four action-packed sections: Party Fun Make a no-bake cheesecake, create a festive pi'ata, learn some fun new party games and discover some great gift ideas, too. Outdoor Fun Teach yourself to juggle, make a twister kite, host your own backyard Olympics or create some highly fashionable newspaper sandals. Magic Fun Amaze and astound your friends with the Know-it-all Box and the Disappearing Penny Trick, bake a Fantastic Fortune Cake, learn to ghost write and learn stupendous magician's tricks. Kitchen Fun Make a volcano erupt on your kitchen table, walk around on homemade stilts, make all sorts of tasty treats from pretzels to a really cool watermelon ice cream cake. Packed with great full color photographs, detailed instructions, trivia and much more, The Anti-Boredom Book is perfect for a rainy day at home. It also makes a great resource guide for camp counselors, scout or guide leaders, teachers or anyone who's looking for upbeat and fun ideas for kids.
