Growing Kind is the home of #natureplayprompts : Inspiring families to enjoy the small things in life.
Consider Nature Play Prompts part of your parenting and/or education toolkit that inspires and encourages your children to get outside and be active each day. Whenever you hear “I’m bored”, or you want to reduce the amount of ‘screen time’, pull out the cards and get inspired.
Together you can explore and appreciate the beauty of nature, while encouraging independence, and instilling a passion for protecting our beautiful great outdoors for generations to come.
For those that are already avid nature lovers, this pack gives bountiful prompts that invigorate learning through art/craft, science, flora and fauna observation, and active play. All of our prompts are well researched with childhood development and safety at the core.
Growing Kind’s #natureplayprompts are designed by early childhood specialists and are suited for children from 12 months to approximately 8 years.
There are 30 prompts (double sided cards with inspiring activities), many offering an ‘extension’ or ‘further thinking’ to challenge the older learners.
Prompt card features also include:
Printed on environmentally friendly paper with a gloss laminate and rounded corners to withstand little grubby hands. We chose the thickest 100% recycled paper to sustain planet Earth.
Each card measures 13 x 9cm, and includes a quirky nature fact.
They come packaged in a hand stamped, cotton keepsake bag.
