Kids & Mother Nature: 8 Reasons Children & Nature Are Meant to Be Together by Teacher Karen
Children and Mother Nature. I’ve said it before and I’ll said it again, kids are supposed to be in and amongst Her! Just as play addresses all developmental areas in children, so too, does being in nature by:
- supporting problem-solving and creativity
- increasing ability to focus
- improving social relations
- supporting physical development
- improving impulse control and decreasing stress
- increasing academic performance
- improving sleep
- improving nutrition
Every effort should be made to insure children are given time to experience the great outdoors every day! It can be as simple as spending time in their backyard or a local park. Or visiting one of our National Parks! Have you heard of the Every Kid in a Park program? It’s a fabulous program to encourage children and families to get out, explore and learn in our public lands, waters and parks.
All families are busy, so get out your calendar, if you must, to schedule the time. Write it down and follow through because it’s important to #LeaveNoChildInside!
