Nature Play & Craft (ages 8-12)
September 24, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am MST$25.00
Looking for a nature-based activity to get your child outside? Ready to let your child’s imagination lead them? In this program, Gabe the Guide creates a space for your child to be their authentic self, connect to nature, connect to other children and, most importantly, have fun!
Nature Play & Craft is designed to improve your child’s skills in:
- using the senses
- fine motor skills
- connecting with nature
Nature Play & Craft in a nutshell:
Gabe the Guide offers participants insight into the activity before setting off on a scavenger hunt. This scavenger hunt encourages children to slow down and focus their attention on being truly present– looking, hearing and feeling what’s around them. Once items are collected, participants are invited to make art and crafts with items collected along the way. Nature Play & Craft is open to spontaneity brought on by what the season and land offers.
