100 Things to do in a Forest
Autumn is here and this season is the best time to spend time in nature, in my opinion. It’s not too hot, not too cold and the change in season is extra beautiful in autumn as the leaves change colours. We love going for walks in the woods as a family, creating adventures for the children as they explore the forest around them.
If you’ve ever wondered what activities you can get up to in the forest, there’s a new book by Laurence King Publishing filled with inspiration for this.
100 Things to do in a Forest is a lovely book by forest educator Jennifer Davis with illustrations by Eleanor Taylor. It’s designed to encourage families to explore the woods and develop an appreciation of our natural world through simple and mindful activities that focus on slowing down and acknowledging ourselves, our thoughts and experiences — all while enjoying ourselves, of course.
“Modern life doesn’t leave much time for connecting with nature. We’ve fallen so deeply into the trap of racing against time that we no longer take time to appreciate the things that can only be experienced when moving slowly.”
In this book, you’ll find a wide range of activities to do together as a family in the woods — building shelters, creating art of different kinds, woodland yoga poses, forest bathing, recipes that you can cook on a campfire as well as lots of useful skills that come in handy when you’re out exploring in nature. Plus lots more!
It’s a book full of inspiration to leave modern life behind for a bit and take time to connect with nature and your family. Slow down and enjoy your surroundings and share these experiences with your loved ones.
100 Things to do in a Forest is available directly from Laurence King Publishing and from Amazon.co.uk.
