Suggesting an antidote to our era of ever-present screens and passive play, our new book, The Nature of Play, offers simple, seasonal activities encouraging children (and the adults who love them) to play with and among nature - whether they live among skyscrapers or fields. Days spent wandering and wondering are what childhoods should be made of - and The Nature of Play is packed with plentiful ideas for simple, fascinating and fun ways to do just that - rain or shine.
In these 44 seasonal activities, banish boredom by:
- Learning how to find your way using nature's signs.
- Making a fire - and then cooking delicious food over it.
- Going stargazing and spotting constellations.
- Creating a beautiful mobile to celebrate the seasons.
- Hosting a special summertime party.
- Tuning up your bike.
We've got all the inspiration you need to explore, discover, learn and make incredible new things, wherever you live and whatever your experience, using only a few materials and your own imagination and ingenuity - all year long.
