Why Children need Nature and Art

 

Nature and art are essential for the developing child

Engage mind, body and spirit, which in turn helps the child grow into a whole being. The spirit needs to be recognized, nourished, encouraged; the imagination needs space and seeds of wonder to nurture, and the body needs fresh air and exercise.

Through exploration and discovery

Nature-based activities awaken the child’s senses, mind and heart. Helping them to express their feelings, ideas, thoughts and urges. Enabling children to better understand their deep-rooted connection with nature and one another in ways that are fun and encourage them to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity.
