Let’s Go Outside is a fun-packed activity book by Steph Scott and Katie Akers (published by Batsford) for children aged 3-7 years. It is a book of original and simple outdoor activities, games, nature facts and woodland skills. It can fill a quick half an hour in the backyard or a week-long camping trip out in the wilderness. With just a few essentials (like string and scissors) and a little help from nature (like leaves, acorns and sticks), children and their families can make, do and play any of the activities in this book.
Packed with imaginative language for kids and great ideas for harnessing nature whatever the weather – including flying through the forest on enchanted wings, sailing across muddy puddles on a raft and even dodging fire-breathing dragons. Projects and games, such as wobble catch, nature boules, rounders and hoopla, are suitable for boys and girls either playing together or on their own.
With things to see and do in every season – from spotting trees, birds, animals, bugs and butterflies, flowers and clouds; to learning woodland skills such as knots, den building and climbing – Let’s Go Outside will inspire young adventurers to unleash their imagination and have fun in the great outdoors.
Steph Scott is a Speech and Language Therapist and Scuba Diving instructor. Katie Akers was a primary school teacher who now runs a successful Forest School business. They have spent endless hours stamping through puddles, dancing through leaves and searching for the perfect stick, working hard to give their children the best possible introduction to nature.
Let’s Go Outside is the perfect book for anyone looking to explore the great outdoors with the kids this autumn!
