Aims to inspire the young to get off their backsides and leave the computer and TV for the great outdoors. There are wonderful ideas for ephemeral beach art, woodland art and ice and snow art; outdoors toys such as wooden go-carts, cricket and rounders bats, boats and rafts, kites and flaming balloons; making objects from wild clay, firing them, and decorating them; making furniture, sculptures and baskets using natural paints/dyes; and craft objects. Very inspiring, very useful.

Following Nature's Playground and Going 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.
