Choosing the right gifts for kids who love nature is the perfect way to encourage a connection with the outdoors.

It’s so important that a love of nature is encouraged and nurtured from birth.

Adults can support their children in their natural environment by providing tools and equipment that encourage them to look more closely and wonder at what they find (magnifying glass, shovel, pond nets…)

Being outdoors is great for physical health but is also so important for mental health.

Developing a connection with nature at a young age will also help to make sure that this respect continues into adulthood…and our world needs more nature lovers!

It’s so easy to go out and buy the latest plastic gimmick as a gift for a child but the enthusiasm it brings is often short-lived until it’s discarded to the bottom of the toy chest.

Choosing a gift that will encourage a child to get outdoors and explore nature is giving them a gift for life! A gift that they can use to explore, learn, experiment and play.

If you want your kids to truly get the best out of their outdoor experiences then these books come highly recommended. I currently have these on my kindle and they’re perfect read for busy parents as there’s no plot to follow!

We’ll start our list of gifts for kids who love nature with these suggestions that will get kids growing their own plants. Can you think of anything better for a nature lover than nurturing their own plants?

You don’t need much room to grow plants…they’ll grow in tiny spaces! Most kids love digging, getting dirty and watching things grow.

Growing a few vegetables can also be a way of tempting fussy eaters to try new foods! Ideally you want seeds that grow quickly…try something like this Vegetable Growing Kit.
