Be bored no more! You’ll love all the fun things to do and make in “More Boredom Busters.” There’s a chapter of activities for each season of the year, and within those, you’ll also find ideas for your favorite holidays, such as Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. Get set to enjoy awesome activities, from Permanent Marker Mugs—add your own designs to a mug for yourself or as a gift—to Woven Magazine Mats that use up old magazines, helping you to recycle at the same time as crafting. The summer Fruit Kebobs are delicious, while the Halloween Party Food, including banana ghosts and clementine “pumpkins,” not only looks great for parties, but tastes delicious, too. Getting messy with paint is always fun, so why not create some Snowman Handprint pictures? You can even tie-dye T-shirts using food coloring, to make yourself a brightly-patterned new outfit. Every activity has easy instructions and uses simple materials found around the home or classroom, so you can get started straight away!
