Wild Wellbeing: Life Through A Lens

This activity is aimed at teens studying Key Stage 3 and upward. The video can also be used as a lesson by high school teachers and homeschooling families.

Spending quality time in nature is a proven way to look after your mental wellbeing. By slowing down, taking notice and paying attention we can get into a mindful headspace. Crating your own nature photography is an effective way for young people (and adults) to learn this technique.

Wild Wellbeing: In the Mind of a Minibeast

This outdoor activity session is aimed for kids at Key Stage 2. The video can also be used as a video lesson by primary school teachers or homeschooling families.

Have you ever wondered what it is like to enter the brain of a bug? They live their tiny lives all around us, in the undergrowth. When we enter the 'Mind of a Minibeast' we can get creative, learn empathy and tell stories about the amazing living things around us.

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!
