Unplugged Play: Grade School: 216 Activities & Games for Ages 6-10

We rated this book:


Unplugged Play is the ideal form of play for children. With two hundred and sixteen activities for children ages six through ten included in this book, there is no excuse for too much screen time or boredom. The activities included in Unplugged Play have been created by kids, so as a parent, you know that these will go over well with your own kids. The activities are divided into solo play, parent & child play, play with others, and party play, with indoor and outdoor activities for each section, as well as water party games and large group games. At the back of the book, Conner includes lists for a well-stocked toy cupboard, household items, and items for arts and crafts, music, and board and card games. This parent found all of the activities to be doable, requiring minimal objects and setup. Many of the games are ones that we already do, such as paper airplanes, drawing, painting, and making homemade cards. We tried fortune teller and that went over well with my six-year-old. I appreciate the obvious enthusiasm that Conner has for this stage of development and the work she put forth creating this helpful guide for parents who might rely too heavily on screens to entertain their children.
