Book Review – 101 Ways to Have Fun


Upon seeing this book, I immediately knew it would be one my preteen would love, and I, myself, have had a great time reading it for this review!

From the editors of Faithgirlz and published by Zonderkidz, 101 Ways to Have Fun is sure to delight and inspire young girls! The recommended age range is 8-12, but I would think this is a book that even younger teenage girls would enjoy!

101 Ways to Have Fun covers a wide variety of topics that girls will absolutely love! Nine chapters on caring for yourself, activities for you and your BFF and fun-filled gatherings give young girls a wonderful array of inspiration!  Some of my personal favorites (that I know my daughters would love!) include the Blooming BFF Spa Day, Concocting Signature Peppermint Pattie Soap, Start a Book Swap and Host Your Own Cupcake Wars! Count me in on all of these, please!

Additionally, I have enjoyed this book because so many of these activities could easily be turned into mommy/daughter(s) outings or crafting and bake days! The book includes something for every season, and with summer right around the corner, young girls and their friends will have an ample supply of fun activities — Pedi Perfection, Set Up a (Lemonade Spritzer) Stand and did I already mention the Spa Day? Definitely count me in!

Needless to say, I highly recommend this book — I know it will be a favorite of ours! And now to get that spa day set … with cupcake wars, of course!



  1. This sounds like a wonderful book. So nice that there are positive books like this that don’t rely on the internet and chat rooms that aren’t child-friendly.

    1. I completely agree, Julie! 🙂

  2. This book sounds ideal for girls of any age, who are always looking for ways to enjoy themselves. Some really good and fun ideas in there, by the sounds of it.

    1. Yes, I think girls of all ages would enjoy this book … there are some wonderful and creative ideas in there! 😉
