Giveaway: Win a copy of Play the Forest School Way

Forest School book

Forest School has become a buzzword within parenting circles as parents become more and more aware of its benefits, such as:

Playing in nature – Learning through experience – Free play – Managing risk

To name a few…

Now, Forest School becomes even more accessible with the publication of Play The Forest School Way, a woodland adventure book packed full of outdoor activities for parents and children. Ideas include making nature jewellery, constructing a bow and arrow, foraging for food and making a fire. The book is written by Jane Worroll, an ex-countryside ranger, and Peter Houghton, a trained Forest School leader

The Forest School movement encourages self-esteem, confidence and social skills through nature play and there have been a number of articles on the movement with Chris Evans also recently singing its praises on his Radio 2 show. This beautifully illustrated book is perfect to take on a summer holiday to the countryside or to use as an activity book for kids and parents when looking for things to do during the summer.

Play The Forest School Way will help kids connect with nature (and their parents!), learn new skills, be adventurous and have fun, with woodland games, crafts and more. The book is written for parents, teachers and guardians and the activities are suitable from pre-school to age 11.
