Building a tree house isn’t one of the many activities mentioned in the new National Geographic Kids Get Outside Guide but there are many others to choose from, whether kids are in their own backyards, at the lake, on a hike through the forest, or even hiking a mountain trail.

Kids will be inspired to get out of the house and enjoy exploring nature with such projects as planting a butterfly garden, making an underwater scope, creating an ice sun catcher, making a telescope, playing a nature ID game and many more. At the same time, they’ll discover amazing things about the great outdoors.

The crafts, games and experiments in the Outdoor Guide aren’t limited to the summer season: snowy day and rainy day activities are also included. Many of the activities can be enjoyed by all members of the family.

Books which encourage children to venture outside, such as this Outdoor Guide, are needed. It’s so easy these days to become absorbed in the screens in front of our faces and thus miss what’s waiting outside to be discovered and enjoyed.

And, as the authors note, nature can make people of all ages happier, more creative, smarter and healthier!
