Kids can get bored wherever they are, even at the cottage. The next time they say that there's nothing to do, give them this book! It's jammed full of fun things to do inside and outside, like building rafts, hammocks, bird feeders, tree forts, worm farms, and telescopes. Or learning how to build campfires, identify plants, cook bannock, construct a lean-to, and weave mattresses out of bulrushes.
If that's not enough, there's also nature study, weather study, water games and rainy day craft activities to keep children and their parents busy.
