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). You'll find us bug hunting, mud making, tree climbing, cloud watching, or splashing in puddles enjoying all that the outdoor environment has to offer. There's always something new to explore, & we can't wait for more adventures this June 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 families & children of all ages to share this June.
