The Nature of Play: A Handbook of Nature-Based Activities for all Seasons offers a remedy to this dilemma. The book features 44 play activities for children and adults in gardens, forests and city parks throughout the four seasons.

For example, the Spring section of the book features activities such as ‘Get to know a tree’ and ‘plan a picnic.’ The Winter section then offers more indoor play prompts such as ‘build your own marble run’ and ‘rainy day games.’ Other activities include:

  • Make your own pinhole camera using a recycled Pringles tube
  • Creative a beautiful seasonal mobile using objects collected from nature 
  • Construct a sand volcano at the beach using twigs, scrap newspaper, matches and (of course) sand!

The Philosophy behind The Nature of Play

The handbook has been created by Delfina Aguilar who is the founder of Fanny & Alexander, a company that creates analogue children’s toys that promote creativity and curiosity. Delfina explains:

“Childhood is a brief and extraordinary time — a time when everything is possible and the imagination is boundless. Fanny & Alexander is dedicated to creating and cultivating moments of joy during childhood that will last a lifetime.”
