Nutty Challenges and Zany Dares by Bob Longe


Nutty Challenges and Zany Dares by Bob Longe

When boredom sets in and kids start whining, there is only one thing left to do: hand them this book! Filled with verbal deceptions, riddles, brain teasers, finger tricks, pesky puzzles, pencil-and-paper gags, mathematical capers and goofy stunts - it gives children all the tools they need to become a one-kid modern variety show. Coins, newspapers, paperclips, handkerchiefs, pens and pencils: all of the activities require only the simplest of materials and when combined with a dash of wit, will astound and confound audiences. At a restaurant waiting for the food to arrive: mix a little salt and pepper together and then separate using the force of static electricity! Trick your friends into thinking you can stay underwater for two minutes...without drowning or getting wet. All of them are great for a rainy day, or any day!
