2013 is The Year of the Young Birder so the following book fits in perfectly with our goal of promoting young birders and outdoor enthusiasm.
The Kids’ Outdoor Adventure Book: 448 Great Things to Do in Nature Before You Grow Up by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer is a great asset for coming up with fun outdoor activities.
It is a book that is much needed in a time where more and more kids are spending less and less time outdoors.
Inside are tons of fun activities ranging from finding bird nests to milking a cow! Each of the activities has an “adventure scale” from 1 to 5 and for each there is a basic description of the activity, plus a more challenging addition the the basic quest.
The activities are organized by season, starting with my favorite season, Spring. In each season are specific destinations, projects, games, and recipes.
Many of the items listed you will most likely be familiar with. But I found a great number of activities I’ve never really thought about or hadn’t really appreciated when I was a kid.
Every parent should buy The Kids’ Outdoor Adventure Book and encourage their children to do as many as the activities in it as possible.
I may even try a few of these myself because you’re never too old to enjoy the outdoors like a kid!
