The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities

There are times when keeping your young children occupied and entertained can be a real challenge, no matter how super-organized or imaginative your parenting skills. This is where The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities, a bumper book of boredom-busting fun, comes in. The aim is to provide parents with loads of simple and quick activities and creative ideas, to engage and entertain their children and encourage them to learn more about their natural environment.

Activities are grouped into eight handy sections: Wildlife Spotting, In the Garden, Messy Makes, Arts and Craft, Games, Rainy Day Activities, Outdoor Cooking, and Music and Dressing Up. Each one is packed with things to do that range from spur-of-the-moment creative play, involving little or no preparation, to mini projects with step-by-step instructions. No matter what your pre-schooler is into, there will be something to stimulate their senses. These are just a few of the ingenious ideas on offer: making a baking soda rocket, painting with fruit, growing your own pizza toppings, feather printing and making a bug hotel to cooking smores, pressing flowers, leaf rubbing and wildlife spotting.
