The Nature of Play


Suggesting an antidote to our era of ever-present screens and passive play, 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 or fields.

The Nature of Play is packed with plentiful ideas for simple, fascinating seasonal ideas for nature-based play all year long, from long-beloved rainy day games to intrepid outdoor adventures, including:

Learning how to find your way using nature’s signs.
Cooking delicious food over a fire you’ve carefully built.
Weaving a timeless basket.
Hosting a special summertime party.
Tuning up your bike.

…as well as nature guides, recipes and poems to take celebrate the turning of the seasons, and conversations with extraordinary people.

From the pure joy of flying a homemade kite to the nocturnal magic of stargazing, this is a book for children and adults alike to turn to, whatever the weather.
