Connecting Kids and Nature: Resources for Parents


This post is constantly updated.

Did you know this generation of children is the first ever that will spend more time playing inside than outside? Although I didn't spend my entire childhood wandering through forests or wild meadows, I did spend a whole lot of time outside playing tag, climbing trees, wandering through empty lots, and looking under rocks for bugs. Helping kids to fall in love with nature is one of my passions. Since I started my blog, I've been documenting my own efforts to connect my kids with nature as well as collecting others' suggestions. It's a topic I have written about many times over the years, and one I plan to write about often in the future.

I created this page as a resource for parents and educators looking for ideas and inspiration about how to connect kids with the natural world. Below you will find links to most of the posts I have written about kids and nature, including:

Is your basil dying?  Turing yellow and brown?  Join the crowd.  Last year was the first year that my sweet basil didn’t flourish.

How to Make Reusable Non-Toxic Dryer Sheets

I don’t know one person who doesn’t crave soft clothes that smell clean and amazing after a wash and dry. I really enjoy it, and I missed those aspects of conventional laundering when I first gave up chemical-laden dryer sheets and fabric softener almost 10 years ago. Since then I’ve found a couple of superb […]
