“Active Bodies, Active Minds, Active Hearts”
Thank you for visiting Nature Families. In our high paced world, it is essential that families feel comfortable and empowered to get their children outside to play and explore the natural world. Our goal is to assist parents and families in their efforts to play, recreate, learn and grow outside, in hopes of creating healthy, vibrant communities and combating “nature deficit disorder.” As parents we find ourselves attempting to navigate the daily routine with a strong intent to raise our children into “whole beings” in a somewhat frantic and fragmented world. At Nature Families we have coined the phrase “Active Bodies, Active Minds, Active Hearts”-this is what we believe ALL children deserve. We have found that spending time outside in nature is one of the best ways to develop these traits in our children, and have met many others in our diverse communities that agree. We hope that some of the resources we share with you will encourage you to try new ideas and projects with your children in nature and can give you tips to help with your next outdoor family adventure!
