Creative ways for children to spend time outdoors and discover nature.
In an era when the iPad is often more appealing than the park, it can be difficult to encourage kids to get off the couch and go outside. In this inspirational book, with ideas for children of all ages, foraging expert Fiona Bird shows the value of playing outside and discovering nature for children and families alike. In Chapter 1, Conservation and Weather, Fiona teaches children about their environment, including conservation guidelines and tips on how to forecast the weather. Armed with this knowledge, the outside adventure begins In the Woods, Chapter 2, with outdoor crafts including leaf art bunting, a dream catcher and stick people. The following chapters include: Meadows and Hedgerows, Seashore, Wetlands, Backyard Station and My Wild Kitchen. So let your kids go wild outside, and enjoy watching them learn and blossom.
