The Kids Nature Backpack Kit is the perfect set for encouraging kids' natural curiosity and introducing them to the wonders of nature! It's an engaging nature field kit that provides real hands-on tools, allowing curious learners to explore the worlds of birds, plants, insects, and more. 

As a parent or instructor, you'll feel the excitement of learning as you review things you first learned as a child, as well as the inspiration that the beauty and intricacy of nature imparts.

Equipping your child for outdoor exploration, this naturalist kit includes:

  • a nature daypack/backpack for endless explorations and nature walks;
  • a notebook for nature journaling and taking field notes;
  • a hand lens for up-close inspections of all kinds of critters, animal tracks & more;
  • pocket-sized field guides full of pictures and fun facts about birds, bugs & wildflowers;
  • compact binoculars/spotting scope;
  • and so much more!

The included Nature Connection book helps families get started with tips on what to look for and where. In addition, the fact-filled Golden Guides let them identify and learn about the treasures they find. As kids catch butterflies and bugs with the insect net, make a leaf and flower collection with the plant press, and watch birds and other small animals with the compact binoculars, they'll learn valuable observation skills and come to love the intricacies of the natural world.

This Kids Nature Backpack Kit, previously called the Young Naturalist's Backpack Kit, is a Gold Award winner in the 2007 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) competition for quality educational toys.
