New interactive packs from the National Trust are aimed at helping young explorers to develop and sustain a love of the great outdoors. The materials focus on three areas of Britain’s natural surroundings – meadows, woodlands and the coast.

The packs include tools for outdoor activities ranging from sand-sculpting to insect identification and are available for free use at National Trust sites in Llanerchaeron and the Llyn Peninsula. Items inside range from butterfly nets and binoculars. It comes after National Trust research discovered that a third of children had never climbed a tree, one in 10 were unable to ride a bike, while almost half could not identify an oak leaf or tell the difference between a bee and a wasp.
