The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities by Laura Minter and Tia Williams (GMC Publishing)

Those lovely ladies over at the Little Button Diaries  have come up trumps again, this time with a book that (hopefully) we might get some use out of soon...
With the weather as wildly unpredictable as ever, we're hoping for a few lovely spring / summer days to try out "The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities" by Laura Minter and Tia Williams.

There are times when keeping your young children occupied and entertained can be a real challenge, no matter how super-organized or imaginative your parenting skills. 

This is where The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities, a bumper book of boredom-busting fun, comes in. 

The aim is to provide parents with loads of simple and quick activities and creative ideas, to engage and entertain their children and encourage them to learn more about their natural environment.

From making groovy pieces of art like the cool stick / pine cone figures, decorating stones (and leaving them for others to find - a particular favourite activity of ours already) or making tracks and trails through the woods (being careful, of course, to leave everything as you find it) this is a superb book absolutely packed with ideas that are fun, cheap to produce and provide hours of entertainments for fiddly tiddlers.

Love all their books but this one definitely wins us over as we love nothing better than trekking off to our favourite patch of countryside at the weekend, we'll definitely be taking this one with us next time we do. 

"The Big Book of 100 Outdoor Activities" by Laura Minter and Tia Williams is out now, published by GMC Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
