Kids have a natural curiosity about the world around us. Who hasn’t waited while their small child watches a ladybird climbing a grass stalk or a bee gathering nectar? So it’s easy to develop that interest into a real love of nature by helping them to explore even further.
One of the best ways to do this is by organising a wildlife hunt. You could focus on birds, plants and flowers, or trees. But one of the easiest and most satisfying (especially for smaller children), is to look for mini-beasts. Mini-beasts are easy to find and mostly harmless, which makes them great for even very small children to enjoy.
