A Day for Nature

Today I got to spend a day in nature.  Just exploring and learning about ways to help kids learn life skills through their interactions with nature.  This is amazing.  Realizing that God’s beauty, in some ways, is all we need to learn some of the most important life skills.

  • It is in nature that we can learn about kindness.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about giving.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about math or science or literacy.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about life and death and growth.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about connections.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about helping and healing.
  • It is in nature that we can learn about protection and safety.

This list can go on and on and on.  If you have some amazing ideas of what can be learned in nature please put them in the comments below.

Most of all I learned that when children (or anyone for that matter) explore the world around them, they come up with their own questions and understandings of the world they are a part of.  Through these questions or knew awareness they can find answers.  What a life skill that is!!!
