DIY Forest School II: Small World Exploration by Rain or Shine Mamma

BonBon Break



Forest schools – where children are playing and learning outdoors every day, rain or shine – are surging in popularity in many European countries. And with good reason, since spending time in nature can boost children’s psychological and physical development.

The good news is that your children can benefit from exploring in nature even if they don’t have access to a forest school. For this nature activity, just grab a trowel, tweezers and a magnifying glass, and let your little ones investigate what’s hiding in the floor of the forest. A small world exploration is both educational and guaranteed to capture their imagination!
