Product Description:

Are muddy boots a staple of your spring and summer months? Take your love of outdoors (and mud!) to the next level with this multifaceted outdoor project book. Five chapters provide 50 projects. Chapter 1 focuses on mud's creative power: from pies to art. There's also a recipe for indoor mud! Chapter 2 details fort building activities from stick forts to teepees. Next up, a chapter of stick and stone activities, including tiny twig rafts, painting rocks, etc. Water is our next focus: some puddle science and building a birch bark canoe. The final chapter offers more nature focused explorations and hands-on activities. Nature scavenger hunts, pressing flowers, bird watching, cloud watching and animal tracks are presented. Beautifully illustrated, engaging narratives and instructions come together to provide a resource that expands on a child's affection for the great outdoors. Most activities will take 30-60 minutes; a few may take 2+ hours (like the mini canoe). 135 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

Publisher Description:

No child can walk through a puddle of mud without a gigantic smile, and while the stuff might be the spring-time bane of grownups, children just love mud. Muddy Boots targets kids and families who value outdoor exploration and grandparents who long for their grandchildren to have the same unfettered time in nature as they did. The book features a wide range of hands-on activities for kids, including mud play, forts, animal tracking and forest wisdom, foraging, insects and worms, bird watching and bird feeding, and many small things for kids to make. Although not primarily about mud, the activities do encourage all hands to get dirty as they explore the world around them.

My daughter loves to have creative outdoor activities for her to do with her 4-year old son. This book of activities has many ideas that they have not yet tried so it will be a nice surprise for them both. Besides, they both love to go outside and stomp in puddles and my grandson is always "getting dirty"....part of the good life, according to my daughter! So this book will suit them just fine.
