TODAY- Nature Play Day!

What are you going to do to celebrate nature today? 
This afternoon, the school-age group will be creating a habitat for garden snails that I recieved at the workshop (mine laid eggs!) 

Here are some ideas you and your children may like to use to reconnect with nature!
  • Earth clay sculptures
  • Branch, shell and stone mobile
  • Turn over logs and rocks to discover what's underneath
  • Plant or pot a garden
  • Buy a pet tree.....yes, trees make great pets!
  • Photograph something in nature
  • Sketch a natural element
  • Make mud pies
  • Play in the forest
  • Walk through the grass in bare feet
All of these things are possible.  If not today, then tomorrow and then the next day and the next.....until we help children understand that the future of their environments don't need to be made entirely of concrete and plastic.

Until You Read Again.....
