Turn off the TV, unplug, and explore, create and discover the many wonders of the great outdoors with the book, Great things to do outside: 365 awesome outdoor activities, by Jamie Ambrose.
This book is filled with practical projects to do outside, ranging from simple observation activities like forecasting the weather, bird watching, or fossil hunting to more ambitious projects such as erupting a volcano, making your own wrapping paper, or creating a pirate ship. Each activity uses readily available materials and includes easy step-by-step instructions with bright photographs. The book is geared for ages 5 and up, however many activities are suitable for younger children as well. The book’s small size makes it easy to pack on a weekend getaway, camping trips, or to carry along on a nature walk. There are projects in the book suitable for any type of weather or climate.
Let’s drag our kids away from technology long enough to make, play and create, and get hands on with nature. Breathe in the fresh air and discover a whole new world, just a step out your front door. The book would also make a great stocking stuffer for someone special on your Christmas list.
