Synopsis

Winter Nature Activities for Children by Irmgard Kutsch, Brigitte Walden, Dagmar Israel

This book is packed full of fun nature activities that will help children engage with the season and learn practical new skills. Activities for winter include making an Advent wreath, blowing walnut ships, making Christmas branches flower, working with wool, weaving, knitting, making felt, woodworking and making things with willow and out of clay. 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.

Reviews

'This brilliant book inspires you with the most wonderful activities and photos...beautiful activity scene ideas, wool carding and weaving...knitting patterns that even a complete non-knitter can follow - I tried them and they worked well.'

--Education Otherwise, Dec. 2006 'A wealth of ideas and inspiration for parents and children, beautifully illustrated with colour photographs of children taking part in the many activities.

--The Green Parent magazine, Jan 2007
