Being outdoors is a huge part of WA life – with our sunny climate that hangs around for most of the year, children spend a lot of time outdoors, usually looking for bugs and worms, playing with sticks and generally getting dirty. Sometimes us parents just need a little bit of inspiration in finding ideas for outdoor play, so nature clubs are a great place to start.
