Nurture in Nature has just launched a novel way to encourage and inspire outdoor play and nature connection for families and early learning environments

With their hands on Nature Bus incursions delivering outdoor play and nature inspired learning programs having been put on hold during the COVID-19 crisis, they’ve been thinking outside the box and have been busy putting together little boxes of snail mail nature inspired goodness.

Each month there will be a NEW Nature Treasure Box available with a different nature inspired play and learning theme.

Mud, Mud, Mud! The internet’s largest list of muddy activities for children and families.

When it comes to children and play, mud is a beautiful thing.

If you think about it, mud is Mother Nature's original sensory play medium and it's been around since the dawn of mankind - way before parents ever thought about the notion of "sensory play"!).

This gloriously mucky yet versatile substance has been used worldwide by countless indigenous artists, as well as builders and construction experts. This continues to be the case even today.
