Item description for 52 Fun Things to Do on the Plane (52 Series) by Lynn Gordon...
Outline Review52 Fun Things to Do on the Plane is from a card deck series designed to inspire creativity and offer an alternative to the idiot box (see 52 Great Books to Read and 52 Special Traditions for Family and Friends). This particular deck, small enough to tuck into a purse or backpack, is aimed at families on the go, and includes games and activities for kids of all ages. Each card shows an illustration together with the name of an activity; the flip side has instructions. For example, one card suggests starting a round-robin story about a trip: "With another person, start telling a story about taking a trip. After a little while, let the other person continue the story and then a little later, you can continue again." The suggestions are perfect for situations in which movement is limited and you have time to wile away.
Product Description This whimsically illustrated deck of cards provides 52 games and activities for children traveling on an airplane. It's the perfect size to pack in any carry-on bag.
These activites are just right for:

52 Ways to Celebrate Life Deck Dec 11, 2005
"Don't wait until you're retired or on your deathbed to make your wildest dreams come true. In fact, don't even wait until next week. Seize the day!" - From the deck
52 Ways to Celebrate Life Deck features 52 small, whimsical cards dedicated to celebrating life. The front side of these cards depicts a colorful image and state a particular theme. The other side offers suggestions on how to implement the theme of the card.
For example, the Life as Art card says:
"You life is like a work of art. Step back and see for yourself by making a collage. Start with a big piece of cardboard. Look through magazines for pictures that capture different elements of your life-the people, places, and things you love; the adventures you've had; your achievements and accidents. Add phrases, feathers, glitter, and pictures of your own. Include images that represent your inner life, hopes, and dreams. Find images to represent your bright side and others to convey your shadow. When you're done, take a good look at this masterpiece of your life. Then give someone you love a guided tour. This life collage can be fun to make alone or with friends."
Some of the themes featured in the 52 Ways to Celebrate Life deck include:
* Synchronicity * Why Not? * Guardian Angels * Sky Gazing * Comic Relief * Buried Treasure * Thank Goodness! * Ah, Wilderness! * Make a Splash * The Hills Are Alive * Sowing Seeds * My Day * Down Load * Big Time * Golden Years * Buddy System
52 Ways to Celebrate Life deck is a wonderful way to be grounded, appreciate life, and stay mindful. The cards serve as a reminder to enjoy the people, places, and surroundings that make up our lives-including our very own Selves! If you're looking for a thoughtful gift for those in need of self-care or would like to keep in touch with the pulsating core in all life, this deck would certainly meet your needs. However, please note that the print on the back is rather small, so those this might prove problematic for those with sight difficulties.

Lots of good advice! Nov 17, 2002
These cards are filled with good ideas and reminders of what it takes to find the right person. It's easy to get into a rut but these cards have ideas on how to get out of the house more and hopefully put yourself in a situation where you'll meet someone. These cards are well worth the money to give yourself a boost especially if you've been out of the dating scene for awhile.
A *COMPLETE* waste of money ... What a ripoff! Jun 4, 2001
This was the worst waste of money I ever spent. All of the short, simple "tips" are self-explanatory; I can't even imagine anyone over the age of 9 not already knowing them. Unless you spend most of your spare time mugging people, I can't imagine that it would add anything to your life. I would very strongly suggest that you save your money and skip this one. YUCK!
Great informational book Apr 18, 2001
It appears this another great card series which was just published. I'm glad I got mine right away. I wish it were in the form of a book instead of cards, but nevertheless, the cards are great. They illustrated, well written and easy to follow. They offers many tips on how to pamper yourself in ways I never even dreamed about. The best part is that they're all affordable. It covers everything from spoiling yourself with foods, applying home remedies to your body for sofe and silky skin and hair, to steam baths and pedicures. There's lots more. I thought the little cards were great. You don't need to be rich, famous, or spoiled to treat yourself to a little (or a lot) of pampering. These cards prove that.
