Make a Chinese dragon out of an old sheet, create a magician's potion to astound your friends, design and decorate your own party invitations or build a dinosaur out of chicken bones. These are just a few of the many zany and totally fun ideas in The Anti-Boredom Book, written by the editors of the award-winning Owl and Chickadee magazines (the people who know how to spell F-U-N!)

Dazzling magic tricks, innovative crafts, entertaining puzzles, great games, fascinating facts and tasty treats abound in this entertaining collection. A perfect solution to the ever-present complaint that 'there's nothing to do,' The Anti-Boredom Book has four action-packed sections:

Party Fun

Outdoor Fun
Teach yourself to juggle, make a twister kite, host your own backyard Olympics or create some highly fashionable newspaper sandals.

Magic Fun
Amaze and astound your friends with the Know-it-all Box and the Disappearing Penny Trick, bake a Fantastic Fortune Cake, learn to ghost write and learn stupendous magician's tricks.

Kitchen Fun
Make a volcano erupt on your kitchen table, walk around on homemade stilts, make all sorts of tasty treats from pretzels to a really cool watermelon ice cream cake.
