Free activities for school holiday fun

Get outside and spring to life!

Research in child development shows that there are tremendous benefits to connecting children with nature. As well as learning about the physical world around them, children who spend quality time outside develop stronger immune systems and healthy emotional coping skills.

With nature all around us, there’s no time to be bored in the school holidays!

Download our Nature Spotter Activity Sheet and see if you can find all of these signs of spring when you’re out and about.
