Cy Tymony’s paperback “Sneaky Uses For Everyday Things” is a terrific solution for anyone facing summertime’s worth of bored children. An Andrews McMeel publication, this book is packed with fun projects for children of various ages.
Children from toddlers to teens will feel like geniuses after learning how to turn household items and craft supplies into fun and useable stuff. Turning milk and vinegar (under parental supervision) into Sneaky Glue, or transforming bubble wrap, rubber bands and jingle bells (among other things) into security gadgets and gizmos without help will make child’s play seem like something Mom and Dad want to do too after the kids go to sleep.
Going camping this summer? Check out the chapters on how to create flotation devices from plastic bottle, string and plastic bags, or how to build six different types of campfires. Family members or campers and their counselors can get an eyeful of nature through the makeshift microscopes for seeing the stars and grasshoppers up close. Solar stills that gather drinkable water from plants, and origami paper cups that readers can make on their own will also make the summer season fly in fun.
Activities in “Sneaky Uses For Everyday Things” call for different levels of skill. May the smiles begin to spread from face to face while choosing the projects you and your progeny can pursue without frustration and with lots of self-satisfaction.
