NANCY BLAKEY writes the Mudpies column for several parenting magazines and newspapers. She lives near Seattle with her husband and four active children.From Booklist:
Gr. 3-7. Few activity books for children present ideas that look and sound as appealing as the ones described in these pages. Each of the four seasonal chapters explains more than a dozen suggested activities for fun outside, most requiring little in the way of materials or preparation. Some of the projects explore science, others bring in nature lore or outdoor cooking skills, while many more are simply fun. Among the latter are such promising ideas as playing sponge tag, extinguishing candle flames with squirt guns, and painting on snow with Kool-Aid-filled spray bottles. A typical double-page spread presents one or two activities, including supplies, clear directions, and perhaps some related ideas. Throughout this treasure trove black-and-white photos focus on procedures indicated in the directions and, more notably, on children happily engaged in the activities discussed. Some activities--for example, making a portable tin can stove--may require adult oversight. Carolyn Phelan
