Summary HOBBIES. Want to save cash, your child's imagination and possibly even the planet? This is the book you need. Packed with great photos of real families in the outdoors, Born to Be Wild contains easy-to-follow instructions for activities that require nothing more sophisticated than a small person's imagination and access to a little outdoor space. Organized seasonally and then by material, it lets parents skip straight to Spring and then to 'Blossom', 'Grass' or 'Earth' etc. according to their present need. Everything you need to engage in and create all of its hundreds of activities can be found in your kitchen cupboard. No expensive art supplies or outward-bound kit required. All you need is the 'Toolkit' listed at the front of the book. These ordinary household essentials include recycled food containers, scraps of paper, string, glue and an empty jar or two.
Subject Outdoor recreation for children.
Nature study -- Activity programs.
