If you’re heading for a picnic in the local park, planning a day at the beach, or just exploring the nooks and crannies of your own back garden, the National Trust’s handy downloadab­le nature spotter guides will help you discover the wildlife around you. From a shy crab peeping out from a rock pool to butterflie­s dancing through the roses, explore nature on your doorstep.

There’s also a craft box of activities to spark imaginatio­ns on the drizzliest of days. Show the birds you care with a DIY bird feeder, attract buzzing bees with a wildflower seed ball, or unleash creativity with wild art.

There are also quick, easy and delicious recipes to whisk up with the kids. From sweet treats and family favourites to savoury snacks, rumbling tummies won’t be disappoint­ed.
