There are times when keeping your young children occupied and entertained can be a real challenge, no matter how super-organised or imaginative your parenting skills. This bumper book of 100 boredom-busting craft activities is all you need to be inspired during those long rainy afternoons, or times when the little ones are climbing the walls, and so are you. Dip in and discover the eight handy sections: Nature lovers, Messy makes, Rainy day, Sunny day, Little laboratory, Paint and print, Playing and performing and Dressing-up. Each one is packed with things to do that range from spur-of-the-moment creative play, involving little or no preparation, to mini projects with step-by-step instructions. No matter what your pre-schooler is into, there will be something to stimulate their senses: making giant bubbles, wooden-spoon puppets, cardboard-tube marble run, balloon tennis, bug hunting, firework painting, hanging pompom bees and paper-plate animal masks are just a few of the ingenious ideas on offer.
