In every kid, there’s a total show-off waiting to emerge—a zany impresario who can’t wait to wow with a good magic trick or nail a crazy dance-floor move. And now with this book, they can learn how!
Far from your annoying uncle’s collection of bad jokes and pranks, Do Rad Tricks! captures young readers’ imaginations with its zany, just-for-kids ideas, bright artwork, and easy-to-rock-out instructions. Authors Sarah Hines Stephens and Bethany Mann know a thing or two about goofing off—they’ve got kids of their own to learn from!—and they’ve collected the best into this volume of 80 activities ranging from faking zombie makeup to boobytrapping a bathroom, from rollerskating backward to running a ninja obstacle course. Kids’ll be thrilled–and parents’ll be amused—with Do Rad Tricks!
This book contains two chapters—one of hilarious pranks and stunts, and one of active, outdoors activities to get kids moving—that update the stale, tried-and-true magic tricks and overdone pranks with fresh, modern, and above all fun activities for the next generation.
