100 Days of Adventure {Review}

 Turn off the screen and turn on the creativity as second-generation homeschooling mom Greta Eskridge shares 100 hands-on learning activities for kids that will connect and enrich your family through adventures, small and big...

Just in time for summer break, 100 Days of Adventure is a fantastic resource for parents looking to get outside with the kids!  There are science, geography, and history projects included that will be fun for all ages.  Whether you live in a rural or urban area, there are adventures you can do right in your neighborhood.  The book is actually broken up into seasonal activities, as you can see in the table of contents.  There are a wide variety for cold weather and warm weather, rainy or sunny, and inside or outside adventures.  But none of them require technology - STEAM, yes; technology, no.  For the parent who wants some unplugged time, this is a great solution.

About the Book

Have a meteor slumber party, attend a symphony concert, take a hike in the rain, preserve colorful fall leaves, and make nettle pesto as children explore a love of nature and venture into the great, wide, real world. From backyard bugs to farmer's market veggies, children will unplug from electronics; explore the world; and learn about nature, art, music, and themselves through STEAM projects and new experiences.

100 Days of Adventure will spark curiosity in 6- to 10-year-olds with

  • Indoor and outdoor seasonal activities, projects, experiments, crafts, recipes, and field trips
  • Free and low-cost activities, with options for different kinds of groups and locations
  • Step-by-step directions, nature journal prompts, tips, and checklists
  • Beautiful photos and helpful illustrations

Children can bond with parents and siblings, learn new skills with individual investigations, or explore with friends in an educational or homeschool group with this full-color activity book. Also included is a note to parents with encouraging start-here guidance on growing a family culture of curiosity and adventure.

Whether your family is looking for fun activities for school breaks at home, road trip vacations, or everyday ways to learn together, this collection of interactive educational activities will help your kids get creative, get into nature, and get closer to each other.
