Hi - my daughter is loving the friday club activities and doing them every week. Many thanks.
Jo (mum of member Emma - 4 and a half!)
Oh you are great....please keep it coming. These are things my son has done, is capable of doing and wants to talk about! ..its so affordable too.
I would like to let you know what a fantastic club and website you organise. There is so much for us to dip into at our school. Sadly we only have just over an hour a week and not enough time to attempt many of the activities you suggest, but I am saving them up for later.

Hi all at Nature Detectives,
Just wanted to say how impressed I am with the great things you put on the nature site - thanks. Keep up the good work.
I am a childminder with a group of children age 4-11 and they all love the CLUB challenges. We recently went on a nature trail and collected the ingredients to make a birds nest. My oldest minde Rachel (age 11) had great fun putting it all together. I also have connections with our local scout troop (my in-laws are the leaders) and have helped them do leaf hunt challenges with the children all thanks to your help! The web site is fantastic and gives great info and resources for everyone and anyone. Thanks again and we hope you enjoy our photos :-)
Lolly (my nickname from the children) and the gang!
Well done, your website is fantastic. I have been using it with my daughter and class for the last few years and have introduced you to many of my friends and colleagues. Thank you so much for my wonderful club pack.
What an excellent website, brill! I’ve printed off my leaf collecting bag and my leaf recognising sheet already! What an excellent website for children (and for those slightly older like myself).
This is a fabulous idea! Well done. My daughter and I have just spent and hour on the site and learned loads! This is the internet working positively.
Paul and Ellie Rowley
Thank you so much for all these wonderful resources!
What fantastic games and fun things to do this summer! We did the woodland log at the weekend, and although the little one is only 3 he loved it!
Just been on the Summer Scavenger Hunt with this!! An hours walk in the fresh air and the kids having fun!!! Great!!
Been for a picnic in the woods and now filling in our woodland logbooks - keeping the kids busy :)
I really enjoy these activities - the children quite like them too!
Join this and there is loads of stuff to keept he kids amused on a wet and sunny day - fab.
Having a great time with these!!! Whole family getting involved!! Tomorrow to the stream for this week's challenge xx
The folder has been put together, the colouring has been done, clipboard and pen at the ready, we're off to buy a magnifying glass and away we go...don't know who's more excited, me or my son!
Wonderful ideas for summer fun
Got membership via tesco clubcard points. Darling daughter loves the weekly challenges.
I love nature detective, I use a lot of their material in woods in Essex where I work as a part-time ranger. Please keep it coming
Let the adventure begin! these are wonderful!
Well done for being so brilliant and full of ideas for kids.!! :o)
I'm looking forward to having lots of fun teaching my son Morgan about nature with the help of the Woodland Trust. I can't wait to get started on the butterfly mobile.
Looks fab!! cant wait to try everything out!
We have had great fun doing the spring spots poster and stickers. Thanks very much!
Michael (for Joe, aged 5)
I just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed being 'nature detectives', the scheme you run is fantastic. My two children look forward to Fridays and can't wait for their weekly challenge - all the ideas are brilliant and I just wanted to thank you for making the summer holidays more fun! Thanks.
Julie, Charles and Annabel
I would like to thank you for loads of ideas.
Hello, I joined the nature detectives on behalf of my grandson Dylan - amazed at just how good your materials are!
Just wanted to let you know that our two grandsons, Edward and Michael, are thoroughly enjoying their nature detectives activities. They love printing off the sheets and their Mum laminates them and then off they go on their walks, worksheets at the ready!! A briliant idea and much appreciated. Thank you,
I LOVE nature detectives.. it is totally brilliant! I use lots of ideas from it with my family and also with the youth organisations I work with... thank you to whoever does all the hard work preparing it. Keep up the good work!
We have just received our first packs for our children who we have
signed up to your club. The packs are really great and the kids are having lots of fun! Having recently become volunteer wardens for the National Trust and are now looking after a woodland in Wales - the packs are absolutely great for the kids who are already really interested in the wildlife present and are learning lots every time we visit about trees, plants, animals, changing seasons etc. We only really found the club by coincidence. It's really great value for money and we will certainly be continuing to be club members after this year and will be suggesting it to other family and friends with children! Well done to those people who have put it together. We look forward to the first challenge next week.
Ian and Niki
Just to say that I have discovered the Woodland Trust's "nature detectives" - absolutely FANTASTIC - esp minibeast and leaves quizzes. Thanks!
Once again I am so impressed by your bright ideas. Thank you for all you do - such an inspiration.
I love the nature detectives stuff, for school and home, lovely to look at and easy to use, who could ask for more?
This has kept the kids entertained throughout the hols.
A must for nature loving children and teachers.
These resources are absolutely amazing.
These have kept my daughter amused for hours! Brilliant.
I cannot explain how wonderful this is! It is so easy to create everything from dials to bingo cards. Thank you for such a wonderful resource.
This kept 6 little boys amused all day.... and we are writing about it today!! 2 days of fun out of 1 activity - fab!
We think Nature Detectives is fab!
Daughter loves this!...so do I!
Am using this with 40 students in Black park tomorrow aaaaarrgh must be mad!!!!
Hi my eldest daughter is 3 1/2 and loves nature bugs an stuff and just adores all the activities and ideas that you provide thank you for the hours of fun you have given us and i hope my youngest 18 months will enjoy as much. cheers
This is great fun and i'm enjoying it as much as my 5 year old. We have spent this afternoon painting butterflies.
Just planned my whole summer using this, thanks.
These are brilliant!! :o)
What a great idea
These resources are fantastic - looking forward to doing some of the activities with my son (and daughter when she's a bit older!) and with my Brownies! Thank you!
This is fantastic! Will be using this with my class on our woodland survival day! As well as my kids during the summer hols. Keep it up Woodland trust!
What a fantastic idea for school holidays
Love it! Have just used your leaf spotting sheet, seed identification sheets, scavenger hunt and your elf home activity with my class on a day trip to Eskdale. They loved it - we're going to plant the acorns we collected to see if we can grow some oak trees! Also use the spotter sheets with my own 7 year old - she loves them too.
