    Grab the kids and get outside!

    All those kids games you forgot to play? A lot of them are in here, along with lots of other projects and activities. Any of these authors' books are worth the purchase. They make excellent gifts, too.

    My seven year old is so excited to have this book. Kids are stuck inside so much, and, well, so are we adults. Run Wild offers a good source of inspiration to get the kids moving or moving as a family too.
