Description of this Book

A practical, dip-in guide, packed with over 100 outdoor activities for children. In an era when the iPad is often more appealing than the park, it can be difficult to encourage kids to get off the couch and spend time outside. In this inspirational book, with ideas for children of all ages, there are over 100 imaginative ways for children to keep busy and have fun outdoors. They can enjoy outdoor crafts such as making leaf art bunting, a dream catcher or their own toy raft, or get physical and burn off some energy with beach hopscotch, animal tracking, and by developing their hunting and gathering skills. Or perhaps they would like to relax and enjoy some star-gazing or pond-dipping instead. There are fun activities to help kids get up close and personal with nature by making a wormery and a bug attractor, doing some investigative ant experiments and putting on their own gastropod race! The book includes handy reference pics to help children identify plants, flowers and wildlife, so as well as enjoying the great outdoors, they can learn to understand and appreciate their surroundings too.
