It’s never too early to introduce children to the natural environment and the wildlife that lives there, with abundant opportunities to have fun outdoors, whatever the weather. Many adults have fond memories from their childhoods of climbing trees and getting muddy in the British countryside.
According to research by the RSPB and National Trust, these are memories that today’s children are missing out on. Only 1 in 5 children have a ‘connection to nature, and time spent playing outdoors has halved in just one generation. The value of a link to nature during childhood has a range of benefits, including; health, education, community and environment.
Wildlife World has developed the explorer kit and mini bug collection with the importance of a natural childhood in mind. Designed specially to educate and entertain children in their gardens or outdoor areas. Moreover, to help create another generation of childhood memories.
