Our Boxes

Nature Curious for families that crave nature connection.

When you’re competing with tech and screen time, it’s a challenge. At times, it feels like a full-time job!

Imagine seeing your child happy, exploring and only using tech to connect with the real world. Watching them grow in skills and confidence while connected to nature with a smile on their face. Engaging with learning activities that they ASK to do. That they get excited about.

Then, there’s educating your little ones about climate change and conservation. Without causing overwhelming anxiety.

It’s a difficult balance to maintain.

At Buttercup, we’re here to help you navigate the big questions. Let us share your burdens, create a better world for our children, and have fun!

Together we'll:

Inspire your child to explore the outdoors.

Engage their natural curiosity and sense of wonder through traditional and digital resources.

Embed respect for nature and conservation in them from an early age.

Our activities are age-appropriate, and get children outdoors to improve mindfulness and well-being. Our AR prints get reluctant kids to explore the outdoors and become conservationists.

Enjoy your family time in nature with our seasonal nature education.

What makes our boxes special?

The activities are designed to help children to connect to nature, learn about the natural world and care for the environment.

Everything you need is either in the box, or can easily be found around the house and a handy parents’ guide comes with each box too. 

We believe that children learn best when their curiosity is ignited and when they’re having fun. 

Our resources are also linked to the curriculum, so they will help to develop your child’s skills in English, Maths and Science too.

What’s inside each nature subscription box?

Each box contains 10-12 items, lovingly created by our eco-friendly team of educators, artists and designers and brought to you in eco packaging.

They include:

– Community environmental impact activities

– Nature scavenger hunts
