Create pine-cone gnomes, build nesting boxes for garden birds, and craft festive angels, all while learning about the natural world -- whatever the weather!
This practical and brightly illustrated book is packed with indoor and outdoor crafts and activities, plus fun facts, to entertain and engage curious children during the colder and wetter months.
All the activities encourage an exploration of nature, from leaves and feathers, to snow and stargazing. Children will love finding out about the natural world through play and creation whether at home or in the classroom.
This wide-ranging book provides inspiration for parents and teachers working with children aged four and up. Most activities can be enjoyed both individually and in groups.
