Playing is in our nature – and playing among nature is one of the greatest delights childhood has to offer, whether you live among skyscrapers or fields. The Nature of Play suggests simple, seasonal ideas for nature-based play all year long, from long-beloved rainy day games to intrepid outdoor adventures, including:
- Learning how to find your way using nature's signs
- Cooking delicious food over a fire you've carefully built
- Weaving a timeless basket
- Hosting a special summertime party
- Tuning up your bike
...as well as nature guides, recipes and poems to take celebrate the turning of the seasons, and conversations with extraordinary people.
From the pure joy of flying a homemade kite to the nocturnal magic of stargazing, this is a book for children and adults alike to turn to, whatever the weather.

Delfina Aguilar is the founder of Fanny & Alexander, makers of wilfully analogue toys (and now books) that offer a welcome antidote to our digital age, and to modern toys which only require children to sit passively before them.
Fanny & Alexander was founded on a fundamental desire to encourage children (and the adults who love them) to play a little more, and a little better – and The Nature of Play guides them to do just that together, whatever the weather. Designed to be a tool for learning as well as creating many moments of childhood wonder, the book is packed with simple, special ideas for enjoying the changing seasons.
