Here you will find some useful resources for parents, carers and educators to use with their children or pupils, to help to nurture a relationship with nature.
We think allowing children time to be in and interact with nature, shouldn't be a luxury but a basic human right. It aids children's wellbeing and development, and builds an understanding of the importance of nature and a desire to protect it.

Create a wildlife-friendly mini garden
Not everyone has a garden or access to wild, green spaces - but we want to show an easy way to connect with and help nature, even if you don’t have a lot of (or any) outdoor space of your own.
Watch the video below to discover how to create a wildlife-friendly mini garden, using one or more upcycled containers.

Story time with Kids Plant Trees
Children have an inherent need to feel connected to nature. Research tells us that time spent outdoors in wild nature is beneficial for their physical and mental health and encourages a positive behaviour towards the environment.
Watch the video below for a short story about two children on a simple outdoors adventure. It shows how easy it can be for children to develop a relationship with the natural world, if only they are given regular opportunities to spend time with it. Story written and read by KPT founder member, Rachael.
