Outdoor exploration: Nature toys, scavenger hunts, games & kits.
Looking for unique and engaging kids toys? Nature toys are an excellent choice when searching for new toys, and they help curious learners make the most of the great outdoors! For kids who love outdoor adventures and exploring the natural world — or even for those couch potatoes in your life that need some inspiration — these science toys and nature toys make great gifts.
Use the selection of bestsellers and nature gift ideas above as your gift guide! Kids will thrill at what they can discover with the wide array of nature and outdoor toys we offer. Our nature toys, kits, and tools will teach kids about life cycles, plants and soil, rocks and minerals, the moon and stars, and so much more.
Unlike many chemistry kits or physics sets, nature toys offer more freedom, improvisation, and outdoor play opportunities. Therefore, these high-quality nature toys are perfect for young kids or those who are reluctant toward science.
- A butterfly net, magnifying glass/magnifier, and Educational Insights' Ant Factory are all invitations to explore the critters that crawl, fly, and roam outside;
- Life cycle replicas (like a butterfly garden or frog growing kit) reveal growth and metamorphosis before kids' very eyes;
- Geology kits encourage kids to investigate the earth and play in the dirt;
- Backpack adventure kits and field guides inspire hands-on discovery, imaginative play, and pretend play that's truly enriching and educational;
- A sunprint kit wonderfully marries art with science;
- And a collection of seashells can be displayed in a DIY mount for all to see! (Note: it's also really fun to closely inspect your rocks and seashells with a Geosafari Jr. microscope!)
Along with providing engaging science & nature experiences for kids, nature toys can also encourage and support STEM learning in many ways. Discover which nature toys are on your children's wishlist and check out today!
