We’re Poppy and Noah, children of the forest. Together with the animals and birds, we affectionately call our forest ‘Mother Nature’. We live in the wild woods and it is the best playground ever! All our games are in this book. We’ll show you how to play them with sticks and pinecones, sheep’s wool and beeswax.

Learn how to make simple craft projects from natural materials such as pine-cones and sheep’s wool. Suitable for children aged 5–8. Creative Nature Play connects children with nature and develops hand-eye co-ordination, dexterity and imagination with tried and tested, age-appropriate projects. Teaching tips are included, along with charming rhymes, anecdotes and stories to keep children playfully engaged.

Author Biography

I’m a mother of two wonderful little girls, lead a blog on Instagram @wild_little_child about free children’s play with nature and magical childhood, an author and an illustrator of different projects for parents and children. I believe that free creative play with open-ended toys makes a great impact on children’s imagination. My kids' favorite toys are treasures of Mother Nature: natural objects are turned into something new with the help of imagination. I hope my book of simple crafts and little stories of Poppy and Noah will inspire you to create and play!
