Engage the family with nature from home!

In the next few months things will be a little different across the UK, but that doesn't mean we can't connect with nature.  It is proven that a daily dose of nature improves your mental health, so we've got a few hints and tips of ways you can get wild at home.

We've got some great activities to keep the family entertained - take a look and engage with nature now!

Get crafty!

We've got some perfect activities for you to do indoors too!  Why not create your own cutlery pouch or make a pond themed tasty jelly treat?  Take a look at our activity sheets below to keep you busy!

Beaver Activities

We are planning to bring beavers back to Derbyshire after 800 years!  We want you to love them as much as we do so we have created some beaver activity sheets which you can do at home which will help you learn all about beavers while having lots of fun.
