“Unbored Adventure” is a wonderful little (174 pp) book. It is a compilation of well over 70 activities in the adventure world for kids, adults, and those who never grew up. With easily followed, open ended directions for everything from camouflage to packing kits, to survival skills to mapping, to sensory sharpening, to orienteering, to lashing, to backyard adventures, to paracord bracelets to tree houses, there is lots and lots for anyone of any age to go out and enjoy.
The directions are amazingly clear and easy to follow without being overly detailed or imposing. The directions leave room for improvisation. The entire book is very well and clearly written.
The formatting is well done. The cover is while flexible is much strong than paper back. While at first glance the book seems cluttered, everything is in its place and well pictured or diagrammed.
This is an excellent book for families with young children, for preteens, for teens, for young adults wanting to explore the outdoors, for people of any age who just want to do something outside and never had family or opportunity to learn how.
There are at least two more “unbored” books, “Unbored Games” and “Unbored Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun” which I intend to explore shortly.
