For parents, teachers and anyone who wants a deeper connection with the world of nature.
This book is packed full of nature activities that will help children engage with the season and learn practical new skills. Activities for spring include building bird nesting boxes, sprouting seeds, landscaping and planting a garden, using plant-based dyes and paints, milk processing and beekeeping. The activities in this book are based on practical experience from the Children's Nature and Garden Centre in Germany and are fully tried and tested.
