22nd February 2019, Bristol, UK - The days are slowly getting longer. As the world of plants and animals starts to wake up again, it’s the perfect time to get your children out in nature.

Anja ffrench launched Mud & Bloom just over a year ago, to inspire families to get their children outdoors and connected to nature. It’s a monthly subscription box delivering seasonal nature crafts and gardening activities to your door. Each box includes everything needed for two craft and two planting activities.

By doing the activities children learn about the seasons, plants, insects, birds, soil and rainfall. 

Anja, a mother of three, believes passionately in the value of connecting children to nature

“Studies show there is more and more of a disconnect between children and nature, and increasingly experts link this disconnect to the rise we are seeing in childhood stress, anxiety and depression. It is vital that children have regular contact with nature, with proven benefits including enhanced brain development, improved concentration and mental health – as well as helping them stay fit and healthy.

People associate this time of year with staying inside but children need to spend time outdoors all year round. Fortunately there are lots of fun things children can be out there making and planting with spring just around the corner. Mud & Bloom boxes are designed to be accessible to people with or without gardens, as each box includes organic, peat-free compost pellets to enable anyone to get growing immediately regardless of what space they live in”.

The Mud & Bloom activities have been developed by qualified teachers and support the national curriculum with influence from Forest School, Montessori and Steiner education. The box arrives through your letterbox, addressed to your son or daughter, at the beginning of each month, packed with seasonal growing and nature craft activities.
