The Kids’ Outdoor Adventure Book: 448 Great Things to Do in Nature Before You Grow Up by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer is chock-full of fun outdoor games, projects, destinations, and foods. Here at ChopChop, we’re particularly found of the food options. Try a springtime smoothie, or garden pizza. Summer brings pickles and ice cream (which we do not advise eating at the same time). Make some autumn trail mix to bring along on a hike, or cozy up by a winter campfire with some homemade soup. These tasty treats are also great fuel for games like kickball, Marco Polo, capture the flag, and red rover. Or pack them to-go for destinations like the beach, nature centers, or the zoo. Wind down your days with projects like nature scrapbooking, container gardening, rock art and nature candles. This book will keep the kids busy all year long.
