Description

It's time to rewild the child! This book of outdoor activities, crafts, nature information and inspiration ties into the burgeoning interest in forest schools and 'rewilding the child', with the aim of reconnecting children to nature and the outdoors. The book is divided by season, providing a year-round resource for families. While all crafts and activities are designed to be carried out outside, these are interspersed with factual pages about forest flora and fauna, which can be enjoyed at home or used as a field guide while out and about. A beatuifully illustrated and informative title to spark children's imagination and free-thinking. With forest school-themed crafts and activities for all seasons, outdoor exploration can be enjoyed twelve months of the year, always with something new to see.
