The Big, Fun Forest Book/Stora roliga skogsboken

There are lots of fun things to do in the forest! Look for signs of spring, play nature bingo, make a hedgehog nest, play with leaves and chestnuts, make your own suet balls for hungry songbirds, throw pinecones at a target and much more. Here is a book chock full of suggestions for fun activities, crafts, mischief and games that will work well for both young and old.

The book is divided into seasons, to make it easy to find something to do that works especially well in the spring, summer, fall or winter. All this is mixed with exciting facts about the animals and the natural environment of northern Europe. Did you know, for example, that bears sleep for 200 days a year or that the common brimstone butterfly has 6,000 eyes?

A hefty book that brings you countless hours of forest fun!
