Projects and Games to Entertain and Keep the Peace
Author: Linda Williams Aber
For all those times when your house feels like a mini-war zone--when siblings are so restless they pick on one another mercilessly or are so angry they can hardly speak--101 Activities for Siblings Who Squabble is a dynamic, creative handbook, full of games kids can play together plus peace-keeping tips that can turn sibling rivalry into sibling revelry. "Fence Menders," for example, will get feuding siblings on the same side. "Corner Warmers" can really take the cold out of a deep freeze. "Argument Enders" give advice throughout for negotiated peace during rough moments. Each activity has a "Different Ages, Different Stages" section to help parents and kids adapt the rules.
From the youngest to the oldest, your child will be fully entertained and engaged. You will find ingenious ideas and specific instructions for playtime indoors and outdoors, for every kind of weather and mood. On indoor days, help your kids make apple heads in the kitchen, fish with paper clips in the living room, or create a creepy haunted house in the dining room. Hot, sticky days are easy with games such as Hose Tag and Sprinkler Jump, Watermelon Fun and Body Painting. Also includes:
- ICY, FREEZING, FUN DAYS: Snow Angels, No-Sled Snow-Sled Race, Painless Windowpane Painting
- RAINY, POURING, BORING DAYS: Sunken treasure, Making Bubbles, and Finger Puppets
