Review: Best Summer Ever - A Summer's Worth of Fun, Inexpensive Art & Learning Projects.

Best Summer Ever - A Summer's Worth of Fun, Inexpensive Art and Learning Projects To Occupy Kids 6-11 At Home For Hours At A Time. By Leila Kalmbach

Review by Stacy Toten and Carol Lawrence

As any of our readers know, the past four years we have been huge advocates for bringing out the inner creativity of your child and the great benefits of connecting them with nature.

Leila has compiled an easy to read guide for any parent, grandparent, camp counselor, babysitter or anyone who is looking for fun-filled easy to make, create or bake summer ideas!

There are over 50 ideas to keep your kids entertained all summer long. We really like the idea of screen free projects. In this day and age our children could use a technology break from time to time. One of the best features of this handy book is you probably have 90% of all the supplies in your house. If not, your local dollar store or crafts store should have the rest. You can modify these ideas for younger or older age children. We love the idea of making homemade ice cream with no electricity. How about the idea of creating a solar oven! Science projects, art, music, there's a little something for everyone. Your child won't be disappointed. These fun activities will stimulate your child's imagination and help them get in touch with their inner creativity.

Whether it's roasting hot outside or pouring down rain, there is plenty of projects you can choose from. Go to Amazon and grab your Kindle copy for only $2.99! Worth every penny spent.
