Book Description

April 2 2013
Nature is a destination, but you don't have to travel anywhere to find it. Just open the door and step outside. A fun, hands on approach to getting involved in nature, The Kids' Outdoor Adventure Book is a year-round how-to activity guidebook for getting kids outdoors and exploring nature, be it catching fireflies in the cool summer evenings; making birdfeeders in the fall from peanut butter, pine cones, and seed; building a snowman in 3 feet of fresh winter snow; or playing duck, duck, goose with friends in a meadow on a warm spring day. The Kids' Outdoor Adventure Book includes 448 things to do in nature for kids of all ages--more than one activity for every single day of the year. Each of the year's four seasons includes fifty checklist items, fifty challenge items, three each of projects, destinations, garden recipes, and outdoor games. Throughout the book, you'll also find fascinating facts, useful tips and tricks, and plenty of additional resources to turn to. Complete with whimsical, vibrant illustrations, this book is a must for parents and their kids.

Stacy and Ken have captured the joy of being alive and the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world. With this book as inspiration, all you need to do is open the door and go."

-Susan Sachs Lipman, author of Fed Up with Frenzy: Slow Parenting in a Fast-Moving World, and Social Media Director for the Children & Nature Network

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this so much. April 2 2013
By nankeen1 - Published on
Remember before you had kids and you dreamed about all the adventurous, enriching activities you would do with your future children? Then you had them and you still had good intentions, but life (and exhaustion) got in the way? While there's still time, before they've all grown up and gone away, get this book. It lists all those awesome adventures in checklist form. I don't know what it is about a check box, but it really gets me moving. My kids like them even more than I do. This is so much better than all those "things to do on a rainy day" books. These are things you really WANT to do, and you don't have to spend $20 at Hobby Lobby for each activity. Most of them are absolutely free. Kids grow up SO fast. Do it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars User friendly for grandparents! May 7 2013
By Vicki Schilleman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sometimes it's difficult to connect with your grandchildren who are all different ages and are used to sitting in front of a video screen or having some kind of earphone in! This book is truly the answer. Divided by season, there are 448 ideas that will allow children of all ages to be entertained and/or challenged while getting some fresh air and exercise. Set up with little check boxes, the kids can even keep track of how many of the activities they accomplish. In addition to the 448 ideas, there are also recipes, projects, and games sprinkled throughout the book. No special equipment or skills required for most of these activities. Just grab the grandchildren, go outside, and start doing things together to build great memories!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outdoor Bible for Grandmothers May 8 2013
By lindaj - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book for bringing generations together, sharing good times, and a fantastic way to enjoy nature. I love this book!!! I live about a thousand miles from my grandchildren. I only see them about twice a year, which makes my time with them very precious. I gave them this book as a gift and we have had a wonderful time in phone conversations checking off all the activities we have already accomplished on previous summer vacations, and are also working on plans for all the new things we are going to try this summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best gift ever! Sept. 22 2013
By Heather - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My mom and I got such a kick out of checking off the adventures we've done in this book. She's still working on Autumn #42 and I'm getting pretty good at Summer #49, but we still have some growing up to do. We bought copies for all the little ones in our lives, but it's really a guide for all ages.
