I am always on the lookout for interesting gifts for kids that last more than 5 mins. A kids membership to a wildlife conservation charity is a great way to get them interested in the world around them. Whatever sparks their interest from trees, to birds to wild animals here are 5 great gift ideas:

The Woodland Trust – the woodland conservation charity offers a kids’ membership from £12/year. Their Nature Detectives Club brings kids nature challenges every single week by email plus an activity pack in the post, a giant wall chart and stickers. www.naturedetectives.org.uk

RSPB – works for the conservation of wild birds and other wildlife. They have 2 types of youth memberships from £18/year: Wildlife Explorer (under 13) which includes an age appropriate magazine, posters, stickers, activities logbook plus free entry to RSPB nature reserves and RSPB Phoenix (over 13) which includes BirdLife and Wingbeat magazines plus free entry to RSPB nature reserves. www.rspb.org.uk

The Wildlife Trust – Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of The Wildlife Trusts. From £19/year (for up to 4 kids at the same address) membership includes a 60 page ‘Wildlife Watcher’s Handbook’, wildlife poster, sticker, badge. Plus your local Wildlife Trust will keep kids up to date with activities in your area. Members also get access to Wildlife Trust’s UK-wide network of more than 300 Wildlife Watch groups and get to take part in the Watch awards schemes. www.wildlifewatch.org.uk

WWF – from £3/ month the Go Wild Club helps children learn more about some of the animals and habitats that WWF is working to protect. Membership includes a magazine plus a Go Wild backpack, animal stickers, wristband, keyring, Fun-packed explorer’s booklet and guide. Go Wild WWF

  1. Great recommendations! We are very into wildlife (we live in a remote area of a forest in the Sierra) and love gift ideas that connect with the bigger world. So many animals need our attention and kids are naturally curious, and interested, in them. I’ll be following along to see what you are up to! If you have the time and interest, I’d love if you checked out my blog of kids projects, forest and mom stuff.
    Cheers!
