Wild Lent

Full Product Description

  • Want fun activities for kids this Lent?
  • Wild Lent is a book that encourages kids to explore, make, and learn all about God's creation
  • There no shortage of fun ways for your family to find wonder and fun this Lent
Rachel Summers' new book, Wild Lent, is a game-changer. Why? Simple: instead of a nice cosy room, coffee, biscuits and lots of discussion about the meaning of Lent, you'll be pulling on some wellies and a waterproof, stuffing into a rucksack a flask of hot chocolate, snacks and some woolly hats, and heading off into the wilds! It's time to get up close and personal with Creation and have a Wild Lent!

As Rachel herself says: 'Many people find that they experience spiritual connection more readily when outdoors, and indeed the Bible is full of imagery drawn from the natural world. Creation is well able to speak to us of the creator, and we can take each encounter as our own personal parable, listening to what God wishes to share with us through it.'

The activities in Wild Lent include:

  • Things to do when it's sunny
  • Things to do when it rains
  • Things to do with others
  • Short and easy things to make and do
  • Even shorter and easier things to do
  • Things to do in the early morning
  • Things to do on the move

So why not make your next Lent a little more wild? Wrap up warm, head outside, and make a shadow clock, lie in a hammock, have a sunrise breakfast walk, go on a giant egg hunt, make some wild garlic pesto, hug a tree, walk barefoot ... and share God's creation with others.

Rachel Summers is a Forest School Practitioner and runs Curious Wilds, which provides forest school sessions involving mud and games and shelters and fires and knives and sticks and climbing and squelching and puddles and string ...

Wild Lent by Rachel Summers was published by Kevin Mayhew in January 2018 and is our 224th best seller. The ISBN for Wild Lent is 9781848679351.

Thematic Index

About the Author

Rachel lives in a vicarage in East London with her husband, their five kids, and a veritable menagerie of pets. She loves her corner of the urban wild, and the fact that within a few minutes she can be surrounded by the multicultural busyness of the market, awed by the wide expanse of the marshes, or enclosed amongst the ancient trees of Epping Forest.

A teacher by trade, and daughter of the highly successful author, Susan Sayers, Rachel moved from teaching in primary schools, through doing work one-to-one with excluded teens, to retraining as a forest school practitioner. She now delivers forest school sessions to nurseries, schools, and the general public. Although she never quite manages to scrub the mud off her hands, Rachel believes she has the best job in the world.

Sharing the magic of all things slimy and interesting, watching the seasons shift and the weather change, finding the beauty in the commonplace and insignificant, holding space for others to explore: these are some of the things which get Rachel excited. She gives thanks for the people, communities and world that God has given her to live in and be a part of, and takes delight in sharing that joy with others.
