Here is a list of last minute gifts for nature-loving kids! From board games to nature crafts to home decor, I included a little bit of everything.
I hear you…It’s a couple weeks before Christmas or three days before that birthday party you’ve been meaning to buy a gift for. I’m here to help! Check out these 15+ awesome nature-inspired gifts for kids!
I Saw It First is a favorite board game in our home! Six triangular pieces turn into a stunning game board featuring 300 jungle animals. Pull an animal counter from the bag and be the first to spot that animal! My boys love this game and will often keep it set up for days at a time and stop in to play it when they have a chance! *Just an FYI, this is not Amazon Prime, so you might want to skip it if you are super last minute!*
Moon in My Room was such a hit with my boys that they both have one! This is a authentically detailed 3D moon that illuminates the 12 main moon cycles. This is a must have for any moon-loving kid!
Rainbow in My Room is another beautiful gift that is sure to stir up a few oohhhhs and ahhhhs. This awesome gift projects rainbows across the walls and ceiling in your nature-loving kid’s bedroom!
These pillows are perfect to sit on and read a book! You can stack them high or get one for a cute accent pillow.
This rainbow sun catcher makes a great gift for a kid or adult! I love these so much! Just hang one on a sunny window and this rainbow sun catcher will transform the sunlight into an explosion of multiple hues. Seriously, tap on the link and check out the product photos!
Wildcraft is a cooperative board game that teaches kids all about medicinal and edible plants. This game is super educational and perfect for budding naturalists!
We tried this mushroom growing kit last spring and got wonderful results! The mushrooms grew perfectly and we could use them to cook. My boys absolutely LOVED watching these mushrooms grow!
This light-up terrarium is a lot of fun! We got this last Christmas and the boys had a lot of fun setting it up and watching the plants grow. This glows in the dark, so it makes the perfect nature nightlight!
This crystal growing lab is another favorite from last Christmas. My boys loved watching these beautiful crystals grow! They grow in eight vibrant colors and come with a lighted display!
Sun art paper is the COOLEST gift you can buy! Just place natural materials on this sun-sensitive paper and set it outside. Within minutes, the sun will turn the paper into a beautiful shade of blue, leaving images of your nature finds on the paper! This looks so beautiful framed!
This nature journal is full of activity prompts and journaling ideas, making it a must-have for young outdoor enthusiasts!
Every kid needs an adventure bag with the essentials! This young naturalist kit comes with everything you need to get outdoors and start exploring.
My boys got this microscope for Christmas last year and love it! This microscope comes with beautiful slides and fun facts and questions related to each slide. My boys have pulled this out multiple times throughout the year and play with it for days at a time!
My kids are constantly asking for my phone to take pictures of nature. This year they are getting their own cameras! These seem like the most indestructible;) so I’m going with this model.
Sticks and Stones is full of nature activity inspiration! From simple nature STEM ideas to more complex engineering activities, this book has just what you need if you are looking for a quick activity or one that will keep your kids busy for hours!
I hope you found a gift idea or two!
