Interactive summertime fun for the whole family.

Mom and Dad have no TV, no computers, and no plans while staying in the family cabin by the lake. So, it's up to Lily and her brother to keep their parents entertained during this summer vacation.

Fortunately, these kids have lots of ideas so their folks won't have to just lie around. With a game of "paddle Paws" using balloons and decorated paper plates Lily relieves Mom's dockside languor.

When a passing shower threatens to dampen their spirits, it's inside for a make-your-own board game using coins and paper.

Then Dad's growling tummy leads to some homemade ice cream using two empty coffee cans and some standard kitchen ingredients.

Later, sundown can't keep the fun down -- flashlights, some string, and a few glass jars provide underwater illumination to see nighttime critters beneath the waves.

In all, Lily and her brother provide thirty-eight crafts, games, recipes, and activities that ensure an interactive cure for cabin fever.

Complete with nature tips, easy-to-follow diagrams, and a cast of comical characters, 38 Ways to Entertain Your Parents on Summer Vacation is any family's ticket to fresh-air fun.
