Winner of The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, the National Parenting Product Award (NAPPA) and the Mom's Choice Award, Gold!

Give the gift of creativity and inspiration to kids with all kinds of interests, from future chefs and scientists to budding humanitarians and comedians!

The Highlights Book of Things to Do deluxe activity book has over 500 tech-free ideas for building, playing, experimenting, crafting, cooking, dreaming, thinking and becoming outstanding citizens of the world.

Organized by interest and covering all aspects of childhood, this one-of-a-kind edition helps kids learn to try new things, to recognize real-life applications of school topics and to unlock untapped interests.

Your child can try tasty kitchen projects such as making rock candy and playing food pranks; engaging outdoor ideas like starting a bucket garden and whistling really loudly; science activities like building a water microscope and catching a “burp” from a soda; and SO much more!

A special addition to the thinking and playing activities is a full chapter dedicated to emotions, altruism and character development. These ideas empower kids to develop positive mindsets — like how to deal with anger or stand up to bullies — and to make a difference in other people’s lives — by creating kindness calendars, sending care packages and learning to a be a good friend.

This book of timeless activities will be cherished by children and parents alike, as they work together and independently to discover, explore, create and do great things.
