As a child, nothing could compare to summer. With its warm weather and long days, the season was seemingly made for outdoor activities. However, as adults, many of us have forgotten how to unplug and simply enjoy the sunshine—until now. In this collection of creative gifts, you'll find more than a dozen reasons to spend some time outside.
For a hands-on outdoor project, look no further than our selection of summer crafts, including a delightful DIY birdhouse and a charming wood flower press. If you're more of an observer, you'll love flipping through the National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America and spinning the handy star wheel. And if you're mostly interested in showing off your summer style, you're bound to turn heads when you swim around with a mermaid flipper.
What are you waiting for? Grab something to do and go outside!
