The Nature of Play offers simple, seasonal activities encouraging children (and the adults who love them) to play with and among nature – whether they live among skyscrapers, suburban streets, forests or fields.

Containing 44 richly illustrated, hands-on activities, seasonal poems, interviews, recipes and flora & fauna guides, The Nature of Play is an invitation to explore, discover and learn. From long-beloved rainy day games to intrepid outdoor adventures, this essential compendium includes:

  • Making seed bombs
  • Tuning up your bike
  • Weaving a basket
  • Learning how to find your way using nature's signs
  • Creating a beautiful mobile to celebrate the seasons
  • Making a fire, and then cooking delicious food over it!

Each project includes the estimated time to complete the project, it's best season(s), whether it can be done inside and/or outside, a list of materials you will need, step-by-step instructions, and beautifully simple illustrations. From the pure joy of flying a homemade kite to the nocturnal magic of stargazing, this is a book that will be well used, whatever the weather.
