It’s summer and time to have some fun! On perfect sunny days, our go-to is the pool. Maybe you prefer the slip ‘n slide or a lake to cool off. It’s all good. But what do you do on grey cloudy days or hectic afternoons when you can’t quite get everyone packed in the car with pool toys and towels? Here at Brightly, we have a solution. We’ve collected some of our favorite outdoor activity books for kids — from preschoolers to preteens. Curious about bugs? Hiking? Astronomy? Birds? Plants? Arts & Crafts? We have you covered. Just make sure to get outside!
