Day 11 of #SummerStuff fortnight, and we’ve gone all outdoorsy with i-Spy; win a fab i-SPY bundle of 12 nature themed books with a pair of binoculars, a magnifying glass, a fishing net and a bug viewer.
The i-SPY books – remember them? Back in the 70’s we simply wouldn’t consider a long car journey without one! Mind you – I never did finish the British Birds one. I blame my parents – no eagles were ever spotted, nor a kingfisher (*note to self, find out if there’s a new British Birds one, purchase immediately and check both birds off. Totally counts that I’ve seen them sometime in the last couple of years…)
Never underestimate the power of these ridiculously simple little books. They engage something basic and competitive within the brain, and you just can’t help yourself – even the bored teen let out an excited HA! when he was first to spot a Dacia on the autoroute in the summer. In our kids’ digital worlds I find there’s something terribly reassuring about the fact that these low-tech and cheap little books (they’re under £3!!!) can still hold a fascination – and sneakily teach a lot about perseverance, observation… and obviously about the thing you’re spotting too.
Absolutely perfect summer holiday fillers – whether you’re off to the Zoo or simply trying to woo the kids away from a screen and out into the woods for an afternoon, they’re an excellent magical resource for any parent to have in their back pocket.
And i-SPY have pulled together a bundle of 12 nature-themed books for you to win, and the set also includes a kids’ compass, magnifying glass, flashlight, backpack, Binoculars, a butterfly net and a bug viewer. You’re all set for an outdoors summer of woods exploring, bug hunting, flower photographing and bird-spotting fun. You never know, a summer spent outside collecting the ticks on those boxes could actually could instil a love of nature in the next Chris Packham.
To be in with a chance to win the i-SPY Nature explorer set, just answer the first four questions in the widget box below. There are more chances to win by completing the other entry options if you so wish – they’re entirely up to you!The closing date for this competition is 15th August 2018 and only entries received on or before that date can be included.
