On-the-go Exploring Pouch

It’s very important to me that parents feel empowered to spend time outside in nature with their kids. Not only is it good for kids but it’s good for parents as well. Here are six reasons why:

  • Nature improves our value on community and families (Louv).
  • Nature brings our sense alive (Louv).
  • Mood and self-esteem are increased with exercise outside (Mercola).
  • Winter depression, even on cold days, is helped by spending time outside (Mercola).
  • Kids that spend in nature perform better in reading, mathematics, science and social studies (Monbiot).
  • Getting children out of the classroom raises “standards, motivation, personal development and behaviour.” (Monbiot)

Let’s be honest though … it’s just not that easy sometimes. To help I usually keep some inspiration in the car or my ever growing bag to spark some curiosity. I call it the “on-the-go exploring pouch.” You’ll be surprised how captivating a magnifying glass or set of mirrors can be to kids! Once you hand over some equipment and let them lead an investigate you’ll be creating memories that will last a lifetime.
