It’s British Science Week!

Did you know that it’s currently British Science Week? It started on Friday the 10th of March and ends on Sunday the 19th of March. There are plenty of activities for you and your children or school to get involved with. For fun ideas or further info on this innovative week, then please click on this link here.

At the Whimsy Wood headquarters we had our very own suggestion for a nature-related science activity that we’ll be getting to grips with this weekend.  Our very own activity to honour British Science Week will be to do some wildlife gardening, where we’ll be planting up a wildflower border to attract plenty of brilliant bumblebees and we’ll be creating some bug hotels for the thousands of important insects that inhabit our gardens.

Can we imitate Whimsy Wood’s perfect primroses and charming celandines with our gardening science project?! 😃📚✨


Now I know that my Whimsy Wood children’s books have been used during science, geography and numeracy classes, as well as the obvious literacy lessons in Primary schools. However if science isn’t your thing then how about entering a Whimsy Wood competition? This Spring competition is being run by Wildlife Watch, which is The Wildlife Trusts’ children’s club. There are signed copies of book 8, ‘Fearne Fairy And The Dandelion Clocks’ up for grabs. All you need to do to enter is click on this link to Wildlife Watch’s website and follow the competition guidelines. Good luck! 😃📚✨

The fabulous front cover of ‘Fearne Fairy And The Dandelion Clocks’!


Well that’s all from me for now, so I shall go and try to be creative elsewhere! Wishing you a wonderfully whimsical week! 😃📚✨
