Lockdowns have been such a challenge for families, but we are here to help!

Our fun nature-based educational resources and kits will inspire young minds, create and develop passions, and provide good family fun!

At Catkin & co we create Forest School inspired resources, crafts, and imaginative play packs to help foster a lifelong love of nature. We help you unlock the secrets to the world waiting for you outside your door. We provide the tools to help encourage children and their families to explore, discover, and be amazed every single day.  Our collection includes a range of discovery cards to take out on walks to see what you can spot. Including Birds, Leaf identification, Animal Tracking, Minibeast Hunts, Fungi finding, and more. Our kits have activities to accompany the cards including Bird Feeding Kits, along with things such as Beeswax Candle and Wrap making.

We are passionate about nurturing a love of nature in children. It’s important to us that our items are eco-friendly and natural materials used. We are ourselves parents, educators, and nature lovers – all products are tried and tested by our own Woodland Warriors.  Our cards and kits are suitable for a range of ages from 2-16, and we can also supply nurseries/schools and Forest Schools, and offer wholesale. Please drop us a line to find out more

There is so much joy to be had from Nature’s treasure hunts and an understanding of the world around us – join us in unlocking the secrets of the natural world and discovering something new and amazing each day!

We are a York based company who build and supply children’s Mud Kitchens. We have a standard range to choose from or we can make bespoke kitchens, we love a challenge, not just for Mud Kitchens but any wooden creation you may have in mind. 

A Mud Kitchen in your garden is a great way to encourage children to spend more time outside. There are many benefits for children playing outside, from well needed vitamin D in the summer to exercise of the body and mind. Our Mud Kitchens provide a great role play opportunity for both toddlers and juniors (and a lot of the time, parents too)!

We source local products from local companies and work to have minimal waste from the products we produce. We offer a delivery service (nationwide as well as local) or you are welcome to collect from our Haxby base!

For every Mud Kitchen we build, we make a small donation to the Woodland Trust, who spend it directly on woods, trees and wildlife.

I’m Maria and I’m a papercrafter and designer based in York. My small business is Turn the Page Design.

I specialise in making artworks, hangings and jewellery using handcrafted paper flowers. The inspiration for these pieces comes from my love of the outdoors and nature. I love experimenting with how different shapes, sizes and textures of paper flowers work together to create something unique and beautiful.

The other side of my shop is books. I have a passion for books, reading and getting lost in different stories. I repurpose old, damaged, shabby books and give them a second lease of life, using their pages to create a vintage backdrop for the prints I design. I have a range of prints available, from Yorkshire landmarks and seasonal prints, to typographical prints using quotes from classic books which are printed onto old English dictionary pages.

My makes are ideal for home and nursery décor, as well as weddings or party decorations. They also make perfect gifts and are available on Etsy. If you’d like to see more of what I do, as I also make custom orders, why not follow me on social media.
