Kids loving getting outside and exploring nature, and we've got a range of kits, toys and games to help them discover more. Have a look at what we've picked out for adventurous kids, as tried and tested by our own children.

Get up close with creepy crawlies

Help kids get up and close with the insect world by providing little bug homes in the garden. Our mini bug box is a great way to look after bugs over winter. It comes with a 16 page booklet to teach children how to observe and care for different types of insect. Or why not attract ladybirds to the garden with this kids ladybird log. Kids will love watching them nestle into the log and you'll love them eating your garden pests!

With its tarpaulin, groundsheet, mallet, tent pegs, rope, mug and camouflage paint, this hide out kit provides everything for young adventurers to create their very own secret den.

Cool, hard wearing clothes

For kids who enjoy climbing trees, getting caked in mud and skidding on grass you’ll need to buy clothes that are durable enough to stand up to this battering. These t-shirts are made out of 100% organic cotton, so they’re not only super soft and comfortable, they’re also hard wearing to. Choose from a daisy and dragonfly or landtrain design, both in a variety of colours.

Pop it in your pocket and take it out with you to the beach, woods or even in your garden. Get a closer look at grains of sand, soil and leaves, anything that’s too small to see with the naked eye.
