Forest Adventures will prepare kids of all ages for antics and escapades all year round. It includes plenty of ideas and inspiration for woodland games, activities and crafts that they can do on their own or get the whole family involved in. From spotting wildlife and building tree houses to stargazing and making homemade lemonade, this book is packed full of adventures and excitement to enjoy, whatever the weather. In winter: learn how to create a campfire, build an igloo, or make a bird feeder. In summer: discover how to track animals, plan a picnic, or build a sundial. Separated into helpful categories that divide activities by type―including ‘Outdoor Explorations’, ‘Water Escapades’ and ‘Fabulous Feasting’―this guide enables kids to connect with nature throughout the seasons.
