I think it’s really important to teach my daughter to appreciate and understand our Northern flora and fauna.
Also foraging food together and then cooking together is so much fun and the best way to get to know the secrets of the forests. This hobby never gets boring, there are so many different mushrooms, herbs and berries out there in our Northern forests! Combining these to the handicrafts we make is a great way to learn I think. Follow our funny ideas in Forest Foods category.
Note! It’s really important to know what you are picking and you need to be familiar with Everyman’s Rights. Don’t eat plants from the nature in front of a child until she/he is old enough to understand that you need to be 100% sure what you are eating – there are many poisonous plants out in the forests also.
