Nature Play and Natural Playgrounds

What is nature play?

Nature play is play that happens in and with nature. Nature play typically involves play with natural elements such as plants and trees, water, dirt, sand, and stones. Most often, nature play happens  outdoors, where children can feel the breezes, take in fresh air, observe the changes in weather and seasons, and feel the warmth of the sun on their skin. Nature play excites all of the senses with sights, sounds, textures, scents, tastes, and also with challenges to how the body moves in outdoor spaces.
