Mother Nature is the greatest teacher your child will have and these Nature Play cards are designed to inspire purposeful interaction with the natural world with little or no equipment, toys or devices required. Just your little one, their curiosity and nature itself – with you there for supervision too of course!
Each card inspires with a simple way to enjoy the outdoors and encourages exploration of new experiences, working through challenges and assessment of the risks they may encounter. By encouraging your child to extend the boundaries of their world and immerse themselves in the changing seasons outdoors you can foster self-awareness and confidence that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Use each card as inspiration for time outdoors as well as a way to create lasting memories of their outdoor explorations.
We hope you enjoy using these cards as much as we enjoyed creating them!
We recommend using these cards with children over three years, or younger with adult supervision.
“By preventing our kids from taking risks we risk them never growing to be independent, brave, capable, resilient and much happier. We need to rein in our irrational fears and embrace risks as being an essential need of all children.” Maggie Dent, as featured in Essential Kids.
