The Big Book of Family Fun

A bit dated, but with plenty of creative ideas for fun!

My aunt is always bringing us her finds from yard sales, thrift stores, and other deals. She knows that we homeschool and are always looking for fun activities, puzzles, games, and books to enjoy (doesn’t every family, anyway?). So recently she bought us a copy of The Big Book of Family Fun by Claudia Arp and Linda Dillow. The book hails itself as a boredom buster, holiday helper, and much more, with ideas for both sunny and rainy days as well as sick ones, recipes, travel activities, and more. Though it looks a bit dated, being published in 1994, it remains true to its name, offering dozens of ideas for all of these activities and more.
