LoveReading View on Make it Wild! 101 Things to Make and Do Outdoors

A terrific book to lure kids away from their computers and to go outside to discover the natural world around us.  It’s packed with ideas for creative activities using natural materials to make things.  Aimed more at the parent than the child/teenager, this book will prove invaluable in providing children with the freedom to enjoy outdoor activities and to enable them to experience their own limits, take measured risks and learn new skills whilst looking after and protecting the world around us.  If you’re looking for a book for children to enjoy along similar lines to this book but more kid friendly then take a look at Go Wild.


Make it Wild! 101 Things to Make and Do Outdoors Synopsis

Following Nature's Playground and Go Wild, the authors once again lure kids away from computers and the TV into the natural world, this time to have a go at making their own entertainment from whatever is available outdoors. This book is about looking at natural materials in a new light and discovering how they can be used creatively. It shows children from eight upwards, including teenagers - and their parents - how to make anything from a cricket bat to an ice lantern, and enjoy expeditions, games and parties outdoors - all with the emphasis firmly on fun. From making things that fly to playing hay bale games, fashioning monsters from wet clay to trying stone jenga, creating living willow sculptures to making natural jewellery, the book helps youngsters to open their eyes and use their imaginations, and to discover the wonder and value of natural materials.
