Summer nature activities for kids 

The summer holidays are a great time to get kids outside and excited about nature. Whether making natural bird feeders for your garden or joining us for family-friendly events out in the Forest, our fun activities are a great way to get the whole family connecting with nature this summer.

Nature activities for kids

Over the school holidays we will be sharing how to make natural bird feeders, seed bombs, bug hotels and water filters, as well as our top tips for identifying different native wildflower and tree species.
