This was one of my son's, it helped him learn to use a stop watch and then to time lots of different things. We timed him doing chores which really made them much more fun!!! We timed him and his friends doing lots of different games and had lots of fun. This little books sparked a bunch of fun activities.
ISBN 1878257528 - A 1993 recipient of the Parents' Choice Award. Any review suggesting it's perfect for long car rides should probably be disregarded. The Events are almost all too physical to do in a car!
Funny - and surprisingly challenging - events to compete in, 73 in all, make for great it's-too-cold-outside or rainy day entertainment. Parents may well find themselves losing to the kids, without losing on purpose, because these are not events most people will have spent any time practicing. From Floss Writing to the One Foot Marathon, everyone will find their niche and have fun doing it!
If you happen to get a copy that doesn't have a stopwatch, there is a free catalog available from Klutz listed on the last page of the book. You can order a watch, other books from Klutz and lots of other fun stuff.
