Counter Whether their outdoor adventures include camping, hiking, or just exploring the backyard, kids will have a memorable experience with this cheerfully illustrated "nature guide" in their backpack. It's filled to bursting with super projects and games. The fun begins at home with instructions for making such necessities as a sleeping bag and first-aid kit, and continues at the campsite with ghost stories and a sing-along. Take a closer look at wildlife by learning animal calls, setting up a bird restaurant, or constructing an earthworm apartment. Try one of the 10 special hikes, maybe the one where you go on the prowl for owls. Most important, see how to leave everything as you found it, and how to bring nature back home in the form of a journal, sketchbook, audiotape, and photographs. With 80 cool outdoors activities to choose from, children won't want to come back inside!
