Online Activities and Resources
Lets Get Outside!
Welcome to Grow-Wellbeing's free online activity page designed to help you to stay connected to nature through this latest national lockdown.
Over the next few weeks the GROW forest school team will be posting ideas for nature activities and crafts, family yoga sessions, stories and bushcraft activities for you to join in with. We will also add links to other sites and activities that we think you will love!
We would love to hear from you! Do share anything you discover in nature or a craft activity you've had a go at.
Tag us at #growwellbeingnature on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or email your pics to: and we'll post them up in our gallery!
Will you take up the 30 x 30 Walking challenge?
At this challenging time, many of us are unable to go out except for essential trips and exercise.
Going for a walk has a beneficial impact on our physical and mental health and wellbeing, and we would like as many of you to take up the challenge of going for a walk for 30 minutes every day for 30 days (we would love it if you carry on after the 30 days too!)
Your walk could be to the park, to the beach, in town or in the suburbs. Will you take up the 30 x 30 challenge? #GROW30x30
When your walk takes in nature, we've got lots of ideas for things around these pages for you to do and see including practising mindfulness outside.
Before you go for a walk, make a note of how you are feeling, then note how far you walk, where to and how you feel after your walk, and the difference it made to your mood. Let us know how it goes: email us at or tag us in your Instagram or Facebook posts #GROW30x30
Every Friday, one of our Grow team will share some ideas of how you could make the most of your weekend nature walk.
We will add some resources to help you enjoy, explore and identify the nature that is right there on our doorsteps. Walking is a great way to be mindfulness, reduce stress, anxiety
and increasing your health and wellbeing!
The Grow team would like to hear from you if there are any nature stories you would like to hear or that you would like to share with the rest of the Grow community.

Duane took a daily walk to Arrowe Country Park and found that the brook had swelled so much it had created a waterfall!
