Connecting children with nature

We've put together some ideas to help you keep young minds active from home.

Many people have found themselves in a situation where they are unexpectedly at home with school-aged children.

We know that keeping the kids entertained at home isn’t always easy so we have put together some activities that you can enjoy in the house and garden. From building bird feeders and wildlife ponds to creating a mini nature reserve or even making your own glow worm. We’ll be sharing more ideas over the coming weeks and there are also lots of things to look at on The Wildlife Trusts website.

We hope that during this difficult time we can help alleviate some boredom and keep young minds busy.

If you’re on social media you could post your results using #DurhamWildlife and tag us so we can share some inspiration. Links to our pages are below:
