You can find out more about Last Minute Science Fair Projects click HERE. Kara McAllister sure could have used this book when she needed to come up with a science project at the last minute. (page 135)

You can find out more about THE BOY PROJECT here. There are also links to outtakes that didn’t make it into the book here.

Duct tape: Kara uses duct tape to get out of an embarrasing situation … and she uses it to help achieve her goals!

Journal and LePen: I wrote in journals constantly as a tween and teen! And I made hundreds of drawings with my trusty LePen.

Pedicured Pencil Kit: Kara mentions these on page 15. If you want to see how the ones we made turned out look here.

That’s it for now! Good luck!

Pssst… If you haven’t heard about it yet, there is an amazing giveaway over on the Apocalypsies Blog!
