Each chapter celebrates a natural element, such as mud, water and sand, and shows how these readily available, and in the most part free, resources can be used through all seasons.

Practical ideas are detailed for taking children under 3 years outside to play. An essential book for those who work in early years, including both staff and parents.

Although it is aimed at children under 3, the principles explored are relevant well beyond this stage. The book helps develop the best practice that children in our care should experience; everything you need is here!
