Secret Diary

More double-daring challenges and reviews

Posted by Andi

Inspired by the star-gazing chapter in the Double-Daring Book, ExpatMama takes to the skies and challenges her readers to find (and name) three constellations. Mrs. Squirrel at Hollow Squirrel double-dog-dares her readers to try their hands at furoshiki. Mom and More asks her audience to take a shot at making a snow globe. Parenting Our Children suggests a hula-hoop competition (18 times is the number to beat there). At Chickanuts, the challenge is to name a female Nobel Prize winner from France, and the crew at Weebles Wobblog shares their very own home-made lava lamps and dares everyone else to give it a try.

Over at All Rileyed Up, Riley used the book as the basis for a mom’s night in, trying everything from hula hooping and dream analysis to playing the harmonica and playing charades. Miss O’s Library Land highlights some of her favorite topics from the book. Amy at A Family Story is using the book with her Daisy Girl Scout Troop. At BeliefNet, Their Bad Mother wonders, “If a child pees in the forest, does anybody care?” (Yes, the book explains how to pee in the woods!) At Squidalicious, Squid reviews the book and lavishes it with praise for its “good, hard, enticingly written information,” and Susan at Crunchy Granola invites her readers to reminisce about some of their favorite rainy-day games.
