Let them go outside and play! More parents are heeding the advice of specialists who urge them to do just that. By playing outside with friends, kids learn valuable interpersonal and negotiation skills and how to make decisions. Outdoor play teaches about the natural world, fosters creativity, and encourages physical activity. 

101 Things For Kids To Do Outside is ideal for parents, teachers, and all those working with youth. This book is ideal for the children who like gaming, TV, movies, the soft couch, and even too many snacks. The kids who believe "there's nothing to do outside" can learn and be encouraged to experience the joy of outdoor play. 

Each activity is described in language easy for a 6- to 9-year-old and illustrated with engaging graphics. Younger children may need direction, at least the first time. Large pictures display all the fun to be had. The activities range from 10 minutes to hours and hours of fun. Some require creativity, make-believe or physical exertion but they are all outside. Perfect for rainy days, sunshiny days, even snowy days. 

Examples of the 101 activities are:

  • Weave a bird's nest
  • Set up a potion lab
  • Make nature rubbings
  • Build a crawl tunnel
  • Hold a mini Olympics
  • Build a human sundial
  • Make a nature walk bracelet
  • Capture animal tracks
  • Fly a homemade kite
  • Make a rain gauge
  • Make a snow maze.
