30 Nature Activities for Kids Celebrating 30 Days Wild

There aren't many days of the year when we're not outdoors (hence the name of our blog) whether we're bug hunting, mud making, tree climbing, cloud watching, or splashing in puddles, our outdoor environment always offers us something new to explore, & we're looking forward to more adventures next month with 30 Days Wild.

To celebrate the return of The Wildlife Trusts' 30 Days Wild we've collected 30 of our favourite nature activities ideal for children & families to share this June.





2 Make a scented nature hanging to display indoors or outside.


3 Make your own Elderflower Cordial using wildflowers.


4 Play in the rain & discover which creatures love it too.


5 Let nature leave a lasting impression with these beautiful clay print hangings.


6 Plant a wildflower rainbow perfect for bees & butterflies.

& Courgette flowers. (Always double check flowers are edible before sampling them!)
