Banish Boredom: Activities To Do With Kids That Youll Actually Enjoy

Looking for ideas to occupy, entertain and even educate your kids during those lull periods when they are complaining about being bored? Banish Boredom is full of suggestions for parents that they will enjoy as much as their kids. The book preaches the importance of considering not only the child’s personality when choosing activities, but to consider their own interests as well, because a happy parent makes for happy kids. The book has something for everyone, from creative art projects to interesting science projects. From exciting sensory projects to fun outdoor activities and field trips. Banish Boredom does much more than simply tell you the activity ideas, it also explains how to prepare for each activity and lists what you will need before you begin. Parents found the book to be easy to read and understand thanks in part to the helpful pictures that illustrate the activities. It even gives resource ideas for the activities including online sources for arts & crafts and science project suppliers. Since we tested this during the summer months parents were especially thrilled to have discovered it and the ideas inside.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

SPRING '22

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

February 15th

June 1st

Testing Ends

October 30th

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
