Ok so there is no actual carving in this book. BUT it's the type of book that we think our kids would love and we'd hope yours would too. It's full of great ideas for nature based creative play, even if you are in the 'burbs'. It features tutorials for different types of knots, crafts, recipes and more. The book is UK specific when it references plants and trees however most of the articles and ideas work wherever you may be.
Is the view from your window more concrete than countryside and are you more familiar with graffiti than green grass? Just because you live in a town or city, it doesn’t mean that learning about wildlife, nature and the great outdoors isn’t for you. This activity-packed book helps you to make the most of your local patch and discover the hidden things you don’t see when travelling around by car. Urban gardens, allotments, parks, cemeteries, playgrounds and more, provide green havens and opportunities for some magical forest-school fun. Whether it be collecting sticks in playgrounds or foraging for nettles in a nearby park, there is so much to explore and learn about.
