Get into the great outdoors! This best-selling guide for children gets you out and about exploring the natural world with exciting activities every day of the year. Take this brilliant book with you wherever you go for observation and interaction with the wonders of nature in a variety of ways. You can make a bug hotel, miniature garden, windmill flower, twig vase, flower curtain, or slingshot catapult. Carve a Halloween pumpkin, watch shooting stars, fly a seed helicopter, cook using the Sun, or help a bird build a nest. Each activity is numbered so you can keep track of what you have been up to.
The endless ideas help young readers explore their own gardens and local parks, as well as discover the magic of the four seasons and have fun during school holidays.
From easy learning for little ones to bigger building projects for older children, there is an amazing array of activities for all ages, interests, and abilities. Step-by-step instructions and crystal clear photography will help you every step of the way.
So what are you waiting for? Get outside and get started!

There are projects in the book appropriate for any type of weather or climate.
