A new guide available from the Forestry Commission called Nature Play: simple and fun ideas for all contains 34 simple ideas for play activities using natural materials.
This practical guide on nature play offers fun, simple and cost effective examples of play ideas from easily sourced materials. It will help Forestry Commission staff and other landowners or managers wanting to improve informal play provision for children. Its presentational style, through photographs, also illustrates clearly to practitioners and partner organisations what is meant by nature play.
