Fall Boredom Busters With #QuartoKnows

Disclaimer: I received books to review. All opinions are my own.

Autumn is coming. That means that as time goes by, more time will be spent in the house. Also, it will be getting dark earlier. All this means that adults and children alike will need more things to keep them busy. Instead of turning to computers and all electronics, let books and crafts lead the way.

I knew this was going to be the perfect book for Tbomb and I was right. He is already planning things to do with his daddy. Even though most things need to be built outside, he is reading it inside and staying interested. Some things can be done inside and some things are the perfect time to do them to get done in time for next spring and summer. I love that it shares a lot of practical projects and fun projects.
