As the Christmas holidays approach, parents all around the world are experiencing a creeping sense of dread. How are you going to keep the kids entertained? Crisis! But never fear; here at Turnaround, with the help of Delphina Aguilar and our new friends at Fanny & Alexander, we’ve got you covered with our December Book of the Month.
The Nature of Play: A Handbook of Nature-Based Activities for All Seasons is a helpful guide to forty-four nature-based activities for children of all ages, and suitable for all weathers. The book is split into sections based on season, with winter activities including building a snowman, creating your own marble run, or making an advent calendar. The Nature of Play also includes recipes and poems, and suggestions of things to see, eat, read and do in each season. Packed with simple, special ideas and illustrations, the book is both an educational tool and a cause of childlike wonder – a welcome antidote to our digital age.
