Get the Children in Touch with Nature 0 comments

Spark your children's interest in wild bird care with fun and exciting ways!

"Today, one of the biggest impacts that we are seeing on children who don't get outside and connect with nature is that they are having a sedentary experience and spending large portions of their time isolated in front of a screen. Getting out in nature provides lots of opportunities to feel connected with their environment but also to play, which is an essential component to children feeling happy and healthy." - Emma Kenny, psychologist and television presenter

Learning doesn't have to be boring! There is so much that we can enjoy, teach and learn right here on our doorsteps. Children are instinctively curious, and birds have so much information to learn about - the names of them, the different colours and shapes.

If you are wanting to entice more birds into your garden, help them by giving them a home and providing a new learning experience for the children, at Yorkshire Trading we have a lot of Wild Bird Care items to choose from!
