My 2.5 year old niece and nephew visited for a week in May. They are real nature lovers; we had a blast going to parks, swimming, feeding the chickens, playing with the cat and dog, and gardening. They were such good little helpers in the garden! I ordered 4 cubic yards of compost from Panorama Paydirt and they helped me spread it all around... Emily has the most amazing eyes- O.M.G. she is stunning!
We will go on nature walks, where we listen, look, taste, and smell. Natural objects will be turned into art objects, gardens will be planted, and we will meet some animals of other species. I hope that this blog will serve as a resource for parents and educators in their search new creative activities to do with young children, activities and games that will hopefully foster a lifelong appreciation for the natural world.
