This nostalgic classic from world-renowned educator, Marilyn Burns, is overflowing with clever, yet simple, activities for kids -- preschool to adult! Many of us who grew up or had children in the 70s and 80s remember this great book fondly, and miss all the creative fun it brought to us and our families. The book presents more than 200 clear and simple activities, including: how to analyze your handwriting, how to take your own fingerprints, making sun mittens, make your own monogram, the pin prick code, how to make paper fly, make a windmill, put on your own neighborhood paper airplane olympics, how to make an egg from a chicken, how to make a wet microscope, how to make water go up hill, how to make your own pair of moccasins, how to write a secret message, testing your ESP, making a troll, the difference between music and noise, and feeling sound. You and the children in your life will also get a great kick from the comic little pigs that run through the book, holding up signs with letters to spell out words (see front cover for an example). The pigs are always up to some playful mischief, and sometimes have trouble arranging their letters into actual words. The fun of looking over all the piggies' efforts, hunting for their quirks and jokes, adds a whole extra layer of mystery and fun to the pages of this memory-making book.
