With all the lovely weather we are currently enjoying in the UK, you might be starting to think about ways to keep your kids entertained outdoors. I have plenty of inspiration for you here on the blog and lots more planned for the next few months. Another great source of inspiration though is a great new book from the bloggers behind Little button diaries, The big book of 100 outdoor activities.
The big book of 100 outdoor activities, Laura Minter and Tia Williams
This book includes 100 different ideas for activities to with your kids outdoors in all weathers. They are split into different categories such as wildlife spotting, art and crafts, rainy day and games. Most of the ideas are quite crafty too. As you all know I’m passionate about getting children outdoors as well as creativity so this book could not be more perfect for us.
The book starts with an introduction to why encouraging children’s natural interest in nature is so important. We also get a little insight into their children and their love of craft and nature. It then moves on to hints and tips for getting started. This includes lists of natural materials that can be used for crafts and other materials that you’ll need for activities in the book. Don’t worry though, they are everyday craft supplies that you will no doubt already own.
The book is full of colour from cover to cover and the activities are all complimented by beautiful photos. All of the activities include at least one full-colour photograph. Most of the activities include full-colour step by step photos, making it really easy to follow the instructions.
Some of the activities will complement other activities that you might already be doing such as starting gardening with children. For example, newspaper seedling pots or a milk bottle watering can.
This book is the perfect addition to any family bookshelf. You will be inspired time and time again to try different activities with your children. I can’t wait to work through these ideas with my girls. My favourite ideas so far are feather printing, a water wall and a toy camping set.
