These are flexible activities, suitable for all ages and living spaces and use minimal resources, so there is something accessible for everyone. Some activities can be done entirely indoors, lots on daily walks and a few require outdoor space. We will be sending new activities every few days throughout this difficult period so stay tuned.
We have teamed up with Sayers Croft, based in Paddington Recreation Ground, to reach more families and share fun and engaging ways to connect with nature. Sayers Croft run a variety of free community events, including children’s holiday activities, so check out their Facebook and Instagram. You can also find all previous Nature at Home activities on their Facebook.
