This book is a perfect for those wishing to encourage children to unplug from their screens and connect with nature.
The first half contains 15 fun and inspiring nature crafts for 4 to 12 year olds. Crafts range from seedpod aliens to wattle crowns and rope making. Children are encouraged to collect and experiment with different natural materials, and use their imaginations to create their own original work.
The second half of the book includes information on 18 hardy Australian native plants which produce distinctive and interesting seedpods, flowers and leaves which are useful for crafting.
Sophie Thomson, author and presenter on Gardening Australia ABC TV, describes the book as “A must for children, parents, grandparents and teachers.”
