Book Description
Don't just live every moment--celebrate it!
Boredom Busters helps you turn everyday doldrums into delightful moments you share with your child. Here is a terrific resource to help you stimulate creativity, strengthen the parent-child bond, educate your preschooler using a healthy dose of fun--and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Celebrate events and milestones such as the first snowfall, a new sibling, or learning the ABCs, using crafts, recipes, games, parties, and stories. Boredom Busters also gives you strategies for dining without whining, fun when the family is on the run, and building your child's faith in God. The ideas are inexpensive and time-effective. With its easy-to-use format, Boredom Busters will help you plan an hour, afternoon, or full day without the "I'm Bored Blues."

Author bio
I am a mother of four children who has traveled extensively through the US, Canada and Japan with Ringling Bros Circus, and speaking at conferences on parenting, marriage, leadership development, and homeschooling. I teach theater, circus arts and playwriting. “Boredom Busters” was my first book published through Zondervan in 2001. My husband of 27 + years and I are homeschooling our theater-crazy, rebel family in a 200 year-old farmhouse in rural PA. We love running to NYC where I grew up to visit my big Italian family and see plays and ballets. I am an avid reader who has a particular passion for classics and historical fiction. Other than that, I’m a woman trying to survive in our everyday world by making the ordinary, extraordinary.
