Summer Camp for Kids: Nature Playtime

by Marie on June 20, 2011

To start off our M&T Summer Camp for Kids series this week, we’ve been playing outdoors, getting creative with nature. After eating a popsicle or two out on the grass, our popsicle sticks were just laying around. My girls were asking what they could do, so to help encourage their play, giving them just a little push, I formed the popsicle sticks into a square. I asked them if they could find a few things from around the yard they could use to fill in this “house”.

After a few minutes of searching, they came back with a little pine cone family. And after 30 or so minutes of playtime, they had created a beautiful home for their prickly pine cone friends.

What is something you can do to share your creativity with your children this week, giving them a little push to help them play on their own?
