Brings the Fun Back

THE KIDULT HANDBOOK is the perfect book to pull out on a boring day. It is packed with fun activities that variate between the amount of people needed and the cost to participate. There are also fun recipes, like Homemade Dunkaroos, and DIY activities, like make your own slime. They have different activities for both indoor and outdoor.

I really liked the pop trivia on some activities that included fun facts. For example, the oldest operating roller coaster in the US was built in 1902 and is located in Lakemont Park in Altoona, PA. There's advice to make activities better under the Pro Tips and ways to make some activities fun for everyone.

Not only does this book take me back to my childhood, but it also gives me ways to connect with my daughter. It gives me plenty of ideas to bring fun back into day-to-day life. We get stuck in a rut by running out of ideas, so THE KIDULT HANDBOOK came at a good time. I also like how it reminds us how much fun we can have without technology always playing a part.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to adults who are looking for things to take them back to their childhood or who are trying to find a way to connect with their child. I would also recommend it to teens who are bored and it could be a welcomed break from technology.
