Nature Play
Thursday, August 23, 2018 from 9–10:30 a.m. in Outdoor Adventure

  • Join us in Outdoor Adventure as we explore and play in nature. Summertime calls us to venture outside and have some fun.  Nature-based play has many documented benefits for children including improved imagination, self-esteem, and coordination while also reducing stress and anxiety at the same time.
  • In addition to all the fun that Outdoor Adventure has to offer daily, members are invited to collaborate on a mosaic that will be displayed in the Clay Studio. Our Clay Studio Specialist Jenny, will lead the activity as children and their caregivers make nature impressions in the clay using found items around Outdoor Adventure.
  • The Slip Pool will also be making an appearance. Curious? Better be ready to get messy! This sensational sensory experience invites little feet and hands to manipulate a clay and water mixture. Picture a kiddie pool filled with water and clay, its time to touch, squish, splash. Sensory play is important for child development and encourages children to explore and learn about the world around them through their senses. 
  • Participate in a fun search and draw scavenger hunt and allow children to look high and low, getting a closer look at details they might not have noticed before.  
  • Planning on joining us? Make sure to get a sticker confirming your membership when you check in at the box office.
