Family Fun Activity Book: Playtimes & Activities to Bring Children & Grownups Together!|
From Keeshan, better known as Captain Kangaroo, comes a guide to games and play scenarios for children ages 3-10. Basic activities in the collection number well over 70, with multiple variations applied to some basic models. Simple is a watchword here--Keeshan wants parents to spend their time playing with the child, not tangled up in creating the props. Recipes for homemade paper, play-dough, and a detective kit are followed by suggestions for a fishing game, rhythm band, and a family or neighborhood Olympics. Lots of these ideas may be familiar from other parenting how-tos, but there is a nice medley of action and quiet activities combined with straightforward instructions.
"Easy-to-use, age appropriate activities... Bravo!"
--Fred Rogers, Mister Roger's Neighborhood
