Take It Outside! Fresh Air, Nature and Nourishing Play

Children cannot bounce off the walls if we take away the walls.” – Erin Kenny

Given Covid, all of our in-person programming has been outside. With the open air, we seriously reduce the risk of spreading germs while simultaneously benefitting from spaciousness and natural elements!  We bring a variety of toys, materials and platy prompts outside, further embellishing our outdoor classroom. While we play, we may pause to listen for the nearby woodpecker, dig in the soil to unearth a worm, or encounter a tiny seashell in the sandbox, deepening our connections to the natural world.

   

Leap frogs.                                                 Swinging, pushing, taking turns.

   

Snuggling in close to read together. 

 

Testing our ears with a matching shaker game.

  

Building rainbow patterns with friends.

   

Digging and making sand pies.               

 

 Harnessing the wind, running and decorating using rainbow streamers.
