“We’re Poppy and Noah, children of the forest. Together with the animals and birds, we affectionately call our forest ‘Mother Nature’. We live in the wild woods and it is the best playground ever! All our games are in this book. We’ll show you how to play them with sticks and pinecones, sheep’s wool and beeswax.”

Learn how to make simple craft projects from natural materials such as pine-cones and sheep’s wool. Suitable for children aged 5–8. Creative Nature Play connects children with nature and develops hand-eye co-ordination, dexterity and imagination with tried and tested, age-appropriate projects. Teaching tips are included, along with charming rhymes, anecdotes and stories to keep children playfully engaged.

Creative Nature Play is more than a crafting book. The stories, rhymes and games nurture an emotional connection to nature. There is so much here to help you while away a wonderful childhood in the forest.

Author: Nadezhda Ostretsova

I’m a mother of two wonderful little girls and I run a blog on Instagram, @wild_little_child about children’s free play with nature and magical childhood. I am also an author and an illustrator of various projects for parents and children. I believe that free creative play with open-ended toys has a huge impact on children’s imaginations. My kids’ favourite toys are Mother Nature’s treasures: seashells, stones, twigs, pinecones, stones and so much more. It’s truly magical to see how these natural objects can be transformed into something new through the power of imagination. That’s why I decided to share this miracle with you through the story of two little ones and their wonderful nature-inspired play. I hope you enjoy my book, which is full of simple crafts and little stories about Poppy and Noah. I hope it inspires you to create and play!
