Nature play is any freely chosen activity that involves children playing outdoors and connecting with nature; whether it’s on the beach, in the woods, at the park, or in your garden.
This resource includes activities that can only be done outside, as well as crafts
and games that use natural materials.
Playing in nature boosts self-esteem and confidence, inspires creativity, and spending time outdoors makes people happier.
Nature play can offer unique and fun ways for children to exercise, and learning about the world around them can foster an interest in science.
Playing in nature can happen all year round regardless of the weather and is a good way to learn about seasons and change.
