Sometimes, for whatever reason, everyone gets stuck indoors. But imaginations still need feeding, arty hands need things to do and energy needs to be burned off. That’s why we’ve put together this collection of activity sheets. They’re great fun for all ages and are an opportunity to be creative and to learn.
And by helping to focus on the natural environment, the activity sheets are also a great way to bring nature’s calming and relaxing influence in to the living room.
We’ll change the activities regularly – so watch this space!

Did you know summer is breeding time for roe deer? This is also known as ‘the rut’. Male deer, or bucks, fight each other using their antlers to try and win the attention of a female, (called a doe).

Mindful colouring exercises
The benefits of colouring in for young children have long been known. It helps improve concentration, hand-eye coordination and motor development, as well as helping them gain self-confidence by creating something of beauty. However, researchers are discovering an increasing number of benefits to adults too. Colouring exercises can help us switch off, reduce stress, and improve focus and creativity.
We hope the following downloadable colouring sheets will provide a moment of calm for young and old alike.
