However, we can generally rely on this one maxim – if you look good, you feel good, but perhaps more importantly, if you feel good, you look good too. For this reason, it’s nice to take care of ourselves, even on our rough days, and dress in a manner that helps us express ourselves without having to think as if there are perfect rules we should follow.

Woodland Crafts & Activities for Kids

It’s important for children’s development for them to get outdoors and have plenty of time to play and explore. We’re lucky in the UK to have so many great woodland spaces, and we’ve been working with the Woodland Trust to help spread the word about their work and the importance of preserving our woodlands.

The Woodland Trust is Britain’s largest charity protecting our woodland and the wildlife that lives there. Over 250 of our most threatened species depend on our native woods for their survival. Yet in the past 70 years, more than half of our ancient woodland has been destroyed.

Today I’m going to share a few simple and fun ideas of how you can enjoy the woodlands together with your family with our essential guide to woodland crafts for kids. Creative outdoor play forms such an important part of childhood, and making woodland crafts is a fun and special way to expand on your woodland walks once you get back home.

Children can create their own designs, building confidence and nurturing their personal connection to the woodland environments.
