Encourage your child to take their adventures outside with the Let's Go Outside Guide Book by Steph Scott and Katie Akers. Designed for children 3 to 7 years, this guide is jam-packed with ideas for fun activities that kids can do in the great outdoors. Perfect for getting children away from screens and out into fresh air as they forage for natural materials like leaves and sticks to help create their activity crafts. With just a few essentials like string in your backpack and a little help from nature, like leaves, acorns, and sticks, you can make, do, and play any of the activities in this book.
Turn off the TV, shut the computer, put down the electronic games: it's time to go outside! Filled with fun activities for every season, this is the ideal outdoors companion for kids. Armed with this book, children can head to the park or countryside where they'll find out about nature, learn woodland skills, enjoy games for groups large and small, and discover flora and fauna.
The cool things to do include: making "Enchanted Wings" from a flexible willow stick and embellishing it with feathers, leaves, and flowers; staging an "acorn Olympics"; and memorizing easy rhymes for recognizing oaks, rowans, and maple trees.
