Help your children engage with nature this spring

Our little ones love of the outdoors is well documented, Seren's fearlessness when it comes to exploring rocky pools at the beach, all of them climbing trees as a try and guess who's most likely to need help, and don't even get me with their compulsion to pick the flowers we are so desperate to grow.

The recent good weather has been much appreciated, we are back to enjoying our back garden and the local beaches.
And I know we are not alone.

As the nights become longer and the days warmer millions of families around the UK will get off the sofa and of the house to enjoy the great outdoors. But as spring bulbs bloom and new bursts of foliage turn our landscape lush green, how knowledgeable are we about the plants and wildlife around us?

Do you struggle to name a bird when your little one hears a cooing sound coming from a tree in the park and do you find it hard to name the flowers that are coming into bud? Now is the time to brush up on your knowledge about nature so you can tell your children about the exciting world of plants and wildlife in their own back garden, or the local parks and woodlands.

Join our live WebTV show where Zoologist and nature writer Jules Howard will reveal some interesting facts about nature in Britain and guide you through what to look to out for this spring when you are in the great outdoors. Following a survey conducted by Cbeebies show Tree Fu Tom which revealed that many parents admit to feeling stumped when put on the spot by their children to identify the name of a plant or tree, now is your chance to swot up.
