Independent Publisher’s Group wrote to tell us about a new book, Nature’s Playground: Activities, Crafts, and games to Encourage Children to Get Outdoors by Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield.
Their description reads:
Introducing children to the excitement of the natural world, this guide to outdoor adventure provides hours of creative, safe, and fun activities. Children will learn how to build a den from branches, make twig boats to sail across a pond, and voyage through the backyard to find tiny insects and creatures. Activities include invigorating games, natural crafts, and lively adventures, all of which are organized by season. An additional chapter also addresses safe activities for children after dark. Perfect for families, caretakers, and educators, this creative resource encourages children to turn off the television and play outside all year round.
