    Read it, loved it and added it to my Kindle so it’s everywhere I go this summer. I have no excuse to stay inside.

    You’re fantastic, Jen Murray. If only we could go to Skateland to celebrate…

    I can’t see the table of contents so I don’t know if you have this already, but I want to make a hot air balloon with Libbie this summer. I bet she would get a huge kick out of that!

    I love the ideas in the Table of Contents…..”go on a bug hunt” reminded me that my 4 yr. old son asked for a butterfly net recently. My 51 would have something to do with butterflies.

    purchased this for my kindle and so excited to have it around for the summer to keep my 3 boys active
    #51 – go on a bear hunt based on the children’s song – going on a bear hunt – i actually found this idea online line a couple of month’s ago because my 4 year old is obsessed with singing going on a bear hunt so now go on bear hunts outside (and inside when raining) with our backpacks, flashlights, homemade maps, etc.

    Love all the ideas and as I was reading, I kept thinking of my own…then I’d keep reading and see that you already had it! :~) So my #51 would be a bike ride or perhaps a 5k (yes, doable with with kids running/walking too).

    I ordered it, but it didnt download–I lost the whole page when I was trying to decide where to have the download go–can’t seem to get back into it so I can keep working on getting it downloaded–I have a Mac–and we often have problems. Thanks

      Joan, if the transaction went through, you should get an email giving you five chances to download. If not let me know and I can check the transactions and see if it went through… We will figure it out! 😉

        Thanks–all downloaded and tucked away! Anxious to share it with some of my young mommie friends. I decided I would give them a five dollar bill and your website, so they can download to their own computers. It just looks like a great resource book for parents and grandparents. Good job!

    #51 Turn on the hose and make “watercourses” in the backyard (or wherever they’re allowed to alter the landscape) — create rivers, canyons, gorges, dams and float paper boats down the streams. I did this all the time as a kid!
