Armed with Get Outside, a kid will never say, ?I''m bored!? again. This book is a key to the world of fun beyond the front door. Activities are divided into four categories (Nature Lover, Outdoor Fun and Games, Cozy Inside and Look to the Sky), where readers will find instructions for making things like sundials, bird feeders and kites, as well as rules for games such as 500 Up, Spud and Shinny.

Accompanying these descriptions are fun facts and scientific, historic and cultural context.
