15 Minutes Out in the Garden
Get the kids outdoors into the garden or local green space.
Explore and discover what amazing things are right under our noses.
Run barefoot in the grass
No instructions necessary - just take off your shoes and socks and feel the earth under your feet - great for the mind, body and soul
Play the listening game
When they're small, stillness is a skill - active listening can help in lots of other areas too
Look after your plants
What do they need to survive, what are they like today, have they changed since the last time you looked?
Take favourite toys outdoors and have a tea party
Spider Web Hunt
Search for webs around your garden- in nooks and crannies
Outdoor play box or bucket
Put together an outdoor play box for the children to use when outside- old buckets, spades, trowels, paintbrushes, spoons, toys, sponges, unused containers or plastic bottles.
Start a mud kitchen or outdoor bakery
Kids love to get their hands dirty making pud pies or exploring new recipies for nature potions
Go on a short scent trail in your garden or nearby green space
