A trip to the country, local park or even into the back garden will be lots of fun with this special pack, which has everything children need to discover and find out more about the nature surrounding them. It contains a 32 page colour book full of suggestions for things you can do outside, from animal tracking to making a mini pond. There are spotter sheets so that you can note down what you see on your outdoor adventures and a tally sheet to keep a record, and there’s even a poster for your bedroom wall. Just the thing to encourage youngsters to put down the console or remote control and head outside.
Discover the nature on your doorstep with a kit packed with spotter sheets and activities, plus a clipboard to take outside exploring. Whether you have a balcony, a lawn or anything in between, discover fantastic activities and tips to transform your local area into a home for wildlife. Follow instructions to make bird and butterfly feeders, a minibeast hotel or a windowbox garden, and become a nature detective with tips on how to study insects, take a night walk and make a footprint trap. Then head outside with your clipboard to explore the nature on your doorstep. Use the spotter sheets to identify birds, plants, animal tracks and much more, and record what you've found on your beautifully illustrated poster.
Ideal for small people who ordinarily protest when told they are going on a walk, whose thumbs are more accustomed to the sofa-bound click and thrust of a console than outdoor note-taking. In the digital age, never underestimate the novelty value of a clipboard and biro. The Bookseller Crow
