Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids

Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to get out of the house and connect with your kids (Sourcebooks; March 2011) is a book by Rebecca P Cohen, which is plum full of creative ways to get outside with your children. 

Here is the synopsis from the back of the book:
Get out of the house. It's good for your kids---and your family.
What could happen if you and your kids went outside, every day, for just fifteen minutes?
You might be surprised at the powerful, profound, and fun effect it can have on a family. And you don't need lots of expertise, cash, planning, or time---just a willingness to get out there and nurture yourself and your kids with a little nature.  A rich and entertaining book of ideas and inspiration drawn from the author's own journey to get outside everyday, Fifteen Minutes Outside is a month-by-month collection of 365 easy and enjoyable ways to connect as a family and explore life outdoors. You can:
  • Picnic at sunrise
  • Stage a flashlight play
  • Become an ice artist
  • Plant a bean tepee
  • Watch the clouds race
  • Build a butterfly station
In an age ruled by screen time and overscheduling, Fifteen Minutes Outside is a welcome resource for every parent, caregiver, and teacher. It's time for a simple breath of fresh air. Let outdoor lifestyle expert Rebecca Cohen begin or enhance your enjoyment of the great outdoors--and bring your family closer together.

I think this book is great. The book has great ideas for children up to the age of about 12. The author gives great tips on things to do during each season & how to adjust things for the climate you life in. I understand just how important it is to do fun things with your child to help promote bonding with your child. My goal is to implement as many of these ideas as possible with my child over the next year! I am very excited to be sharing some extra fun time with my child! We can all spare just 15 minutes for our kids & our family bond right? Go ahead--go outside--bond!
