Awhile back, I was interviewed by the great folks at KaBOOM! about nature play.
Since we are nearing the end of Children & Nature Awareness Month, I think it is the perfect time to remind all we adult types why nature play is so important — for all of us.
Please give the interview a listen. I talk about the many benefits of nature play, as well as tips and concrete ideas — and spend time dispelling some of the myths that are pervasive in today’s fear-based parenting.
I would love to hear about your play memories from childhood, and discuss any questions or concerns you have about outdoor play in today’s society.
