Imaginary play outside?

I was very much encouraged to go and play outside. I remember the scuff marks on my shoes because I used my feet to stop and not my brakes. I remember being outside a lot growing up. I did the bulk of my growing up in a small village then small town so we were never far away from being in farmland. The boys have grown up firstly in a very small village and right now in a city suburb. I know I have felt out of my depth with outdoor activities. Whether you have moved or are looking for interesting things to do outside. I know how easy it might be for us to be outside but sometimes it’s hard to motivate the little ones to stay out for long periods of time. Some can and some need a little help.
The photographs in Caroline’s book, Small Fry Outdoors really bring the ideas to light. After listening to both interviews you’ll get a sense of the type of activities to expect in this book.
I’ve really enjoyed our copy as a coffee table book and as an ideas book.
