We are trying to get in shape (again) and trying to do fun things like walking on the beach with metal detectors, walking in the country, anything that is fun for exercise. Camping is fun but it is nasty. This book sounds right up my alley.

I would love a sample of this book, I think it is a great idea when people make things from items they already have. I always seem to have a lot of garbage and I think it is excellent to think I can actually do something with it.
I am very curious to see what the author of the book has come up with.

BusyHands writes: As a Girl Guide Leader almost 100% of the crafts that we do are nature themed or nature inspired, even though we meet in a very urban setting. My fave nature craft with the Guides has been making bookmarker while we were on a bike hike along a city-bound waterway. While I do have a "leave nothing but footprints" policy, I knew that the "weeds" would be mowed down in a few days so I let the girls pick them, press them and turn them into bookmarks. The other leaders were impressed that we did a craft on a bike hike!

I'd love to be able to share the ideas in the book with my Guides! Great inspirations I'm sure.
