There are lots of benefits of nature play. As multi-sensory beings nature play allows opportunities to connect to our environment and promotes health benefits such as reduced stress, increased physical health and increased resilience.
And what’s even better…. Nature play is really simple!!
Grab a magnifying glass and a basket and you have yourself a nature hunt! Go exploring and see what goodies you can find either in your own backyard, at the park or on a hike. You and your little one will be focused on seeing the small details of the world around you. It’s amazing to see what wonders we miss when we are normally so busy.
If you want to go a step further - take a notepad and book to write down your findings or create a nature hunt checklist including things like feathers, pinecones, flowers, mushrooms, etc.
Have fun exploring ✨
