Top 5 Books: Outdoor Activities for Kids

I list my Top 5 books which parents can use to get their kids learning outdoors, doing some great activities. These books are perfect for any family who is homeschooling, parents who want their kids to get outdoors more, and families whose kids love being outside and want to take things to the next level.
Parents ask us a lot where they can get ideas for themselves to inspire their kids to get outdoors more. I work as a Forest School Leader and Outdoor Educator so these books come tried and tested.

If you like these books, or you love an outdoor activity book which is not listed here then tell us about the book in the comments section below.

Thanks for watching!

Teach Kids About Pollination

If you're looking to introduce kids to the subject of pollination, making a Magic Hazel Wand is a fun way to introduce children to the concept of how trees are pollinated. Let us show you how to make this simple craft project, which makes a great activity for a Forest School group of younger children.
The catkins from the male part of the hazel tree produce the pollen which is needed by the tiny (but very beautiful) female flowers so that they can develop into hazelnuts later in the year.
This activity makes a great session for Key Stage 1 school children and we often work with school groups delivering outdoor education on a range of topics. If you'd like to get in touch with us to find out how we can rewild your school curriculum then please get in touch.

Great Outdoor Activity for Kids: Mud Kitchen

Here's a great outdoor activity that young children will love. We set up a mud kitchen in our Forest Kindergarten and let the children loose on it, armed only with their imaginations. You can try this yourself at home or in the woods.


A fantastic new way to get today's video gaming kids away from the screen and into the great outdoors. Wildcraft Adventure is available to outdoor activity leaders who want to get kids hooked on nature.
