Description

Make it Wild! shows how children can enjoy the endless opportunities offered by wild places. Looking at what nature has to offer, they explore the potential of diverse raw materials such as snow, leaves, and sticks and suggest how to work with them. The book demonstrates how to use nature's free, renewable resources to make anything from a clay monster to an ice lantern or flaming balloons. Making things outdoors involves creativity and imagination, as well as learning how to solve practical problems, how to work together, the need to see a process through from start to finish, and the safe use of potentially dangerous tools — all of which help children acquire the skills they need to cope with the world and develop a commonsense understanding of the way it works.
