Playful Nature Day 21st May
On 21 May, which should have been the next Outdoor Classroom Day, the organisers are inviting everyone to celebrate their connection to the natural world by dressing up in nature! They’ll be sharing lots of ideas in the run up to the day – with a Pinterest board for inspiration, including how to:
- Make a nature crown out of leaves, cardboard or twigs.
- Use a cardboard box and paints to make beautiful butterfly wings.
- Turn yourself into your favourite animal with a simple mask.
If it’s possible or you have the space, children could spend time playing outdoors in their creation on the day. Or they could dress up for their daily walk or hang out on the balcony to make their neighbours smile. Whatever you do, they are encouraging you to share it on social media on 21 May using #PlayfulNature.
We would love to see what you do too, so don’t forget to email pictures in to school.
