Parents, how many times have your kids driven you crazy with those favorite summertime words: “I’m bored”? Of course, boredom can strike at any time, even on weekends when the rascals only have two days off from school. Authors Joshua Glenn and Elizabeth Foy Larsen have a solution—actually hundreds of solutions—to the problem of having nothing to do in Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun. From simple experiments such as dropping Mentos in a bottle of diet Coke or making a baking soda and vinegar volcano to more extensive projects like making a cigar box guitar, Unbored is sure to keep young (and young-at-heart) people busy.

Want to start your own band? Unbored has a few suggestions. Want to make a stop-action movie? Check out the tips in Unbored. Want to create your own board game? Unbored devotes several pages to ideas and interviews that will help get the gears in your brain turning. Kids and parents alike will get a kick out of these projects, and may even find their niche in the world by using their imagination to build upon the authors’ ideas.
