Nature play is one of the most powerful tools we have to give children the type of childhood they need to grow into thriving adults. Nature play calms children’s nervous system, offers the most beneficial sensory stimulation, and is an eager co-creator in play and learning. The benefits of nature play are increasingly recognized, however there is an essential aspect of nature play that has yet to be fully explored: the multi-sensory value of nature play and how it helps children grow into more complex, balanced, and joyful human beings.
This inspiring session will provide in-depth insights about children’s seven senses (there’s not just five!) and how they influence play, learning, and connection. We’ll cover why children need sensory-rich nature play and learning environments, and how we can tailor the sensory experiences of these environments to the individual needs of children, particularly neurodiverse children. By creating sensory-supportive nature-based places for children, ones they experience daily, we are better able to nurture our young in a way they can realize their true, full potential.
