About the company : Naturebag was created by Sylvie de Sousa and Katharine Byers, two Vancouver mums with one vision – to help children and their families reconnect with nature. “With 10 years of elementary teaching experience, a Masters in Environmental Education, an International Business degree and four young children between us, we recognized the need for an accessible tool to engage children with nature. So what better than a child sized, organic cotton shoulder bag (with adjustable strap for Mum and Dad!) full of hands-on, curiosity led games and activities. It was also important to us to consider our environmental impact when creating Naturebag, so we chose to use recycled and organic materials in its creation.”
My 10 y/o loves to be outdoors and likes to find bugs and look at different plant life, well all my boys do but he is my "real nature boy" . I was happy to have the opportunity to review the Naturebag since I knew he would probably use it all the time and he does !! He goes outside and he spends what seems like hours looking at everything with the magnifying glass and collecting interesting leaves. I am looking forward to also going outside and doing some of the activities with him.

The Naturebag's activity booklet will guide you and your child through hands-on educational activities for children between 3 and 12.

Everything you need to do the activities is right there in the bag:
  • 1 rubber wood magnifier
  • 1 box of soy based crayons
  • hemp twine
  • 8 color cards
  • 2 leaf viewers
  • 1 recycled notepad
  • 1 recycled jeans pencil
  • 1 organic cotton blindfold
  • 1 activity booklet
Benefits of the Naturebag :
  • connect children with their natural environment
  • offer a hands–on, curiosity led alternative to TV and video games
  • support the psychological and emotional well being of children through their
  • interaction with nature
  • create for our planet, stewards of the future
  • contribute to the source of income of families in KV Kuppam, a district in Southern India, through the manufacturing of the organic cotton bag and bandanna in their factory.
  • provide you with the choice of buying an earth-friendly product

The Naturebag would make a great birthday gift or just a great buy for any child that likes the outdoors or a child that you would like to encourage to get outside more.
