If you're wanting to get the kids out and about and away from all their computer screens etc - take a look at the My RSPB Nature Clipboard from Amazon .
You can treat them to this from Amazon for just £6.36 at the moment. Within the 32 pages, you'll find plenty of ways to interest them in wildlife and the great outdoors.
The book is for 7 to 10 year olds (the RSPB say 7 to 12 year olds),.
Whether you have a balcony, a lawn or anything in between, there are activities and tips to transform your local area into a home for wildlife - which will give the kids plenty to look for and at.
There are instructions to make bird and butterfly feeders, a minibeast hotel or window box garden, and how to study insects, take a night walk and make a footprint trap.
Outside, you can use the spotter sheets to identify plants, animal tracks, birds and more, and then record them.
This is a great way to get kids involved in nature. They are her future guardians, but there's no reason why they can't start now with a little encouragement!
Eryl Nash is the author and Hannah Tolson is the illustrator. The review so far (the book was only published in April 2108) have been terrific.
