Play with nature

Why play with nature ?

Outdoor play gives a small child the opportunity to explore and connect with what is around him in nature. It can be experienced differently in each of the four rhythmic seasons and with each of the unique, natural elements. It is a play that is filled with wonder and companionship for what lives and grows. Play with nature brings contentment and inner peace to the soul life of the child. When children play outside in nature the senses are stimulated for their healthy development. There are no instructions and hindrances. The simplest of materials found outside become favourable toys, transformed into whatever the childs imagination creates. Natural toys are a gift and an aid from nature then.
