Adventure can be found nearly anywhere, from forests and mountains to city streets or your own back yard; all you need is a little curiosity and some creative activities.
With more than 30 years of experience, outdoor educator Richard Irvine presents 52 outdoor activities to engage and challenge children. He begins with rules for responsible behavior, how to make an adventurer’s kit bag, a detailed list of tools to have on hand, plus guides for carving and knots.
The rest is divided into three sections – Making, Games and Stories, and Exploring – where young adventurers can master new skills and become better acquainted with nature. Activities include building a rope swing, making a custom walking stick or wind chimes, sound mapping, track casting and reading tree rings.
Filled with color photos and illustrations, the book provides step-by-step instructions for each activity. An excellent resource for getting children outside and exploring all that nature has to offer.
