Outdoor play helps children keep fit, improve their coordination, develop social skills and is fun too! This book will provide hours of entertainment with games to play and things to do alone or with friends or family. The range of lively and gentle activities for gardens, parks, the beach and the countryside will ensure that kids learn how to make the most of open spaces and explore the great outdoors. Games for all ages involving running and chasing, hide and seek, bat and ball and skipping ropes are all included, as well as nature activities. And with traditional favourites described alongside less well-known variations, each with an at-a-glance guide to age range, number of participants and equipment needed, the kids will be spoilt for choice!
