A Little Bird Co.
Little Birder Set
As a mum, I know how important it is to me that my two daughters feel connected to the world outside our window. The natural world is a source of endless fascination for children and I am keen to nurture that instinctive love of wildlife and being outdoors.
A bird feeder and a supply of nutritious bird food to fill it with is a brilliant way to teach responsibility and empathy from a young age. Going outside daily to put out food gives children the opportunity to notice seasonal changes, and spending a little time each day watching the birds as they visit is a brilliant way to encourage an interest in wildlife.
Our Little Birder Set is the perfect way to inspire your child to connect with nature. A lightweight, robust and easy to use bird feeder, a bag of seasonal bird food and a fascinating birding book are the perfect way to start a birding journey. We offer free postage on our starter sets, and you can add a greetings card and a pair of children's binoculars to make the perfect gift.
According to a report by the Wildlife Trust, "children experience profound and diverse benefits through regular contact with nature. Contact with the wild improves children’s wellbeing, motivation and confidence." We know that our own sense of wellbeing can be improved by time spent outdoors in nature or just watching the birds from the window, and the same is absolutely true for children. And to quote Sir David Attenborough; "No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced." An understanding of the natural world and the wildlife just outside our windows can increase a child's desire to protect and conserve what they grow to love.
