NATURE ACTIVITIES AND GAMES

Our nature activities and games are suitable for ages five through adult. Although our focus is on the children, we encourage adults to take part and lead the activities. They are fun and provide learning for all ages. We think that parents especially, will treasure these inspirational moments with their kids.

Consider each nature activity as a beginning. Each game or activity is designed with layers of discovery, which we can lead each child through individually. How do we do this? With your help as a parent or teacher, it's simple.


Many of the games listed here (and a whole lot more that aren't) are from

THE MENTORING PROCESS
All of us at Outdoor Nature Child are mentors. We provide the questions and challenges for each individual child. If you, the parents, will be our partners, together we can move a child to a deeper level of nature skills and awareness.

Parents or Teachers, please keep this in mind. While it is essential for you to lead each activity we present, it is just as important to allow each child to participate at whatever level he or she is comfortable. We are not concerned with "correct answers". What we are looking for is an engagement in the activity and the heightened awareness that will result from that.

A Message For Kids

We hope you will take part and join the fun with us. Please remember two important rules. (1) Always check in with your parents before starting an activity. They must always give their approval first. (2) Be Safe. If you do not feel safe in an activity, don't do it. Ask us for another one that feels better for you. If you work with your parents, and follow our instructions, you will enjoy our nature activities in complete safety.

With that said, it's time to begin! Come with us now to the wonderful world of nature. It's easy to get started. Just click on a nature activity from the list below.
