Forest School Adventure: Outdoor Skills and Play for Children

May 22, 2020

Home-schooling your kids has been going on for weeks and coming up with new ideas is getting harder and harder. Maybe you’re ready to try something new? 

How about spending time in nature, hugging a tree or building a shelter together. Or you could create natural collages and sculptures for others to enjoy on their walks.

If you’ve ever wanted to help your children deepen their connection to themselves through nature, this is the book to add to your collection. I’ve always loved guidebooks that provide the steps to create from nature. This book kicks it out of the park.

Forest School Adventure reminds me of the importance of outdoor play. It provides creative ideas to engage your kids in the natural world. Want to make dandelion syrup or toffee apples on a campfire? You could even learn to track animals and survive in the woods by creating a shelter.

“…interacting with nature nurtures children’s creativity, promotes good health, raises vitamin levels, inspires problem-solving and builds confidence.”

Most importantly this book helps kids and adults to quiet their minds through enhancing their awareness of what’s around them.

I can’t wait to get into the woods and find my “sit spot” to take in all that nature has to offer.

Thanks for the recommendation Candice. Love the looks of your dandelion syrup!
