Are you looking for inspiration to get your kids outdoors? Grab 15 Minutes Outside by Rebecca P. Cohen. This book is full of ideas for each of the four seasons to get your little ones excited to be outside, and getting their nature on. This summer, we have been searching out places to swim (the beach is wonderful), and "playing mosquito" where we spray each other with water bottles.
What if you got outside every day, and what if you could get your kids to come along? It sounds modest, but the effects, as dynamic outdoor spokesperson Rebecca Cohen herself can testify, are profound. This inspiring collection of activities gives families an idea for every day of the year, requiring little planning, no expertise and relatively little resources (time, cash, or patience!), no matter where they live. Simple and inspiring, this book is bursting with hundreds of easy ways to get your family out into nature a little bit every day.
I look forward to getting ideas for every season. Your kids will enjoy using their imaginations, and you will enjoy all of that fresh air!
