101 Offline Activities – Book Review


These days it seems everyone has an iPhone, droid or iPod, something to connect us to the Internet. I personally love it and will admit it – I’m addicted! I love how much info there is to find. And of course I bought each of my kids and iPod touch and they are only 3 and 10!

But, seriously, we all need to monitor what we do and how much time we spend connected with and electronic devices and focus on each other. I love reading and playing with my children. I love to act silly and play games. 101 Offline Activities You Can Do With Your Child is a great little book that gives you a ton of fun games to play with your children. The book is filled with activities you can do at home, on the go, at restaurants and more!

One that we’ve played since, forever, is I Spy. The book calls it Bistro Spy. While waiting for your table at a restuarant or waiting for your food, you can spy objects all around the restaurant. Other favorites, that we always do – Traveling Board Games – I used to make my own, and Travel Tally, where you count certain objects while traveling on the road.

Many of the games get creative by upcycling and recycling products around the house, I love that.

If you’re looking for more ideas and some good clean fun to be had with your kids or grand kids, check it out!

These games are fun, easy and eco-friendly!

You can buy the book from Barnes & Noble or Amazon here.


This is a FRN review. I received a copy of the book to facilitate this review. opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

  1. I lived for these kinds of books with my kids! So glad they’re still making great ones like this.
