Switch off from today's busy digital lifestyle with projects to help you stop and appreciate the world around you Slow down. Simplify. Let go. Connect with Nature does just this. Each turn of the page through spring, summer, fall, and winter will lead to a new discovery and a new project to help you weave nature and creativity – and some wild fun – through your everyday life. Make teas from foraged herbs, go on a picnic, weave a wreath of wildflowers or turn sticks, stones, and feathers into wall hangings, dreamcatchers, and necklaces. Rediscover a childlike joy of nature through more than 75 creating, cooking, making, and doing projects. Connect with Nature is the ideal way to put down your devices and spend time with your friends, your family, and, of course, yourself. It will entice you to step outdoors, breathe the fresh air, and settle into a slower pace of life, a life where the satisfaction of making things by hand means you connect with your natural environment every day.
