I am whole heartedly passionate about getting children connecting with nature. I hold a bachelor of applied science, specializing in wildlife biology, a Graduate Diploma of Early Years education and have been teaching children from kindergarten to teens as an environmental educator (wildlife and environmental education) for over 12 years. I have been sharing wildlife and nature activities online for over 5 years at MotherNatured.com
Many of my printables are invitations to play with nature or natural materials and children have freedom to express their creativity and in any way they wish. Kids these days are spending less and less time outside, yet there's mounting evidence that unstructured time outdoors--where they interact with the nature world, create their own games and practice making their own decisions--is actually essential to their mental, physical and psychological development. There's even a term for it now. The concept of 'nature play' is taking the world by storm as parents get back to basics and exchange some of that screen time for green time.
