From the author of 101 Things for Kids to do Outside, which has fast become a go-to book for children and parents alike, comes this excellent new volume full of creative (and occasionally crazy) ideas for things to do when the weather is bad and you're stuck inside - without having to go any where near a TV or computer screen! Why not grow a windowsill herb garden, make your own jigsaw, or learn to play the glasses? Get crafty with decoupage and salt dough, or play detective by dusting for fingerprints. Exciting makes include terrariums and kaleidoscopes, whilst wacky games cover everything from Balloon Stomp to Sticky Note Scramble. All 101 ideas are designed to be achievable with little or no parental help, and only use materials that you already have around the house. With a wealth of creative and fun suggestions to keep you amused, you might not even notice that the rain has stopped.
