Nature Calls activities for children

How do we share our love and passion for the natural world with young people? The first step is to get children into the great outdoors. With all the other distractions around, this is easier said than done. In this series of activities, we encourage children to get familiar with the plants and animals around them.

Nature-based outdoor activities for children

Nature Calls is a series of nature-based activities for children aged roughly 8-14. We have created these activities to encourage children to go outdoors and observe and explore the natural world. Rather than providing lots of information, Nature Calls focusses on direct immersion and observation of nature.

We have created a platform Nature Calls where we will post a new nature activity on a regular basis. Children can access these and write to us with their queries, and the observations they make in nature.

The ideas and content for the Nature Calls series are provided by NCF; Brainwave magazine designs, illustrates and publishes the series.
