A quarterly box of seasonal nature activities for kids ages 4 to 8, each box comes with 12 or more nature activity sheets and an augmented reality nature print. The activities motivate kids to get outdoors and explore the natural world while also supporting them in taking eco and conservation action for themselves and their families.
Rachel is on a mission to ensure that the activities in the box have a positive impact on the environment. We’ve worked hard to ensure that our packaging also adheres to this practice!
We only work with suppliers who share our values. Our entire packaging is recyclable. Our branded washi tape is made of rice paper, contains no toxic adhesive and is printed with vibrant vegan inks made from soy. After use, the tape is both home and commercially compostable, decomposing completely in 180 and 90 days, respectively. It can also be recycled curbside after use. Priory Direct, a B Corp certified UK company, supplies our letterboxes. The boxes are made from recycled materials, recyclable and reusable. Our yellow tissue paper is recyclable and biodegradable, and it can be used for crafts or gift wrapping for children. Share your upcycled and repurposed boxes and tissue on social media to win prizes!
Once you’ve finished with our plastic-free stickers, they can be disposed of in regular compost (though keep in mind that these will take longer than regular fruit and vegetables (and even longer if the conditions are colder)).
The backing paper can be recycled with your regular household recycling.
Our nature activity sheets are printed to order on FSC certified paper. Our printer delivers our orders in eco-friendly recycled cardboard boxes with recycled packing paper, corrugated cardboard and paper packing tape. They are ISO accredited for ISO 14001 Environmental and all their inks are sustainably produced.
Our boxes are intended for children ages 4 to 8. To reduce paper cuts, the corners of our activity sheets have been rounded.
The worksheets have been designed to be read by children aged 7 and up, with some support needed for scientific words. With reading support, younger kids will enjoy completing the activities. We advise having an adult oversee outdoor foraging and craft sessions.
The number of activity sheets in each box can be doubled if you have more than one child.
Our activities have been designed to be low-cost and simple to carry out. Our craft activities are designed to be made with natural materials or objects from your recycling bin, as well as art supplies that most families have on hand.

Augmented reality is a technology that allows you to combine the physical world with the virtual world using a technological device. Scan our posters or books with a free scanning app on your smartphone or tablet to reveal animated content, videos, sound files and web pages.
Thanks to augmented reality (AR) technology, the creatures of the natural world are brought to life on your smartphone or tablet.
