Get Your Kids Outside

Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids
Spring is a great time to think about getting your kids outside into the sunshine and fresh air. Many times I've talked about getting kids off the couch and into activities besides their computer, the TV, video games, or other electronic devices. A new book, 15 Minutes Outside provides 365 ways to get out of the house and connect with your kids.

What if you got outside every day, and what if you could get your kids to come along? It sounds modest, but the effects, as dynamic outdoor spokesperson Rebecca Cohen herself can testify, are profound. This inspiring collection of activities gives families an idea for every day of the year, requiring little planning, no expertise and relatively little resources (time, cash, or patience!), no matter where they live. Simple and inspiring, this book is bursting with hundreds of easy ways to get your family out into nature a little bit every day.
And on day 366, make sure to read books for boys under a tree someplace.

A copy of this book was provided by the publisher at no cost.
