Helping kids (and adults) learn how to spot native Aotearoa New Zealand trees in the wild!
Tree Snap: In each pack of beautifully-illustrated cards by Ezra Whittaker-Powley, you will discover fun facts about 14 trees unique to Aotearoa (New Zealand) including the iconic pōhutukawa, nīkau palm, mānuka, and more. Simple icons help you identify which trees are favourites for our native birds and bees, and which rakau (tree) played an important role in Maori legend and traditional medicine.
There are 4 duplicates of each card which means kids can play Tree Snap with friends or games of Memory.
Each pack of Tree Snap contains 56 cards which come in a soft, draw-string bag that makes it very easy for little hands to use and put away. All cards are printed on Forest Steward Council (FSC) Certified Paper.
The perfect birthday present or waste free gift.
Taukapu Rākau: The Taukapu Rākau card game has been designed to help us get familiar with our native tree taonga in a fun and friendly manner.
In each pack, you can discover fun facts about 14 trees unique to Aotearoa: including the iconic pōhutukawa, kauri, and more. Only two of these rākau are the same as the original Tree Snap game, so you can combine both packs for extra fun!
Taukapu Rākau is completely in te reo Māori, generously translated by Te Taura Whiri o te Reo Māori—Māori Language Commission. Each pack also contains an English translation sheet.
Like the original Tree Snap, the 52 Taukapu Rākau cards have been beautifully illustrated by artist Ezra Whittaker-Powley, and printed on Forest Steward Council (FSC) Certified Paper.
Trees That Count have done their very best to make these environmentally friendly: the bags are 100% biodegradable and reusable calico cotton, manufactured in a SEDEX certified facility which ensures a fair wage policy.
Each purchase of Tree Snap or Taukapu Rākau will fund the planting of one native tree through the charity Trees That Count - which is awesome for our environment! Find out how many trees we have funded so far and where these trees have been planted here.
