Book Description

1 Mar 2013

Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield are back with more wonderful ideas for fun outdoors even in the most challenging weather!
Imagine -   jumping in the biggest puddle you can find!
-    Or running barefoot and feeling squidgy mud ooze up between your toes!  
-    Or run up the nearest hill to feel the wind try to carry you away!

When it’s wet, or windy or cold, there’s no need to stay cooped up indoors; it’s a great opportunity to rush outside for some fun.
-    Go on an animal hunt and find the creatures that come out in the wet.  
-    Fly a kite in the wind and catch falling leaves.  
-    Take your camera into a white world and see how many different icy patterns and shapes you can find.  
There are loads of exciting and creative things you can do in the natural world when the weather’s wild.  So don’t wait for the sun:  take this book with you and go outdoors for a wild weather adventure!

They both live in Oxfordshire with their families.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wild Weather Book 4 Mar 2013
By G
This is a fantastic book not only for children but for adults alike. I love project 29, mud castles, it is so liberating for children to know that they can play, crawl and cover themselves in mud and understand that it is ok, I showed this particular part to my grandson and he was enthralled and we are going to have a go this week, we have plenty of mud around at the moment. The ideas in this small book are so exciting and ALLOW children to be children. I work with schools in the woods and see that children are not allowed to get dirty and are scared they will be told off by their parents, so sad. Bring on the weather, we need never be put off by going into the great outdoors and enjoying ourselves and loosing ourselves in our imagination. Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful book 4 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Inspirational and lovely photography. Great activities for a huge range of ages, abilities and sizes to tackle. Bags of ideas where you think "oh that's brilliant . Why didn't I think of that? it is so obvious!" Many ideas use very low tech "ingredients" which is wonderful . Book is the perfect size for a pocket or rucksack.. I hope Fiona Danks does loads more books like this.. I'm completely addicted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild Weather Book 25 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughter who is a child-minder, and she was thrilled. Gave it before Christmas so that she could start her planning, as she had told me that her first theme was 'weather' and she's hoping for some variety!!!
