In this podcast, Michelle and I chatted about how to develop your child's learning and language while out in nature. We talked about making excuses to get them outside in a natural way including walking the dog & digging in the garden.
If your toddler or preschooler doesn't like walking very far, then this episode is full of wonderful ideas to inspire you to get them more active in nature.
Michelle shares the "roar" game and "count the tails" and the "alphabet game", that are some great distraction techniques for when the kids are getting tired or start complaining.
She shared ideas for how to display their special items that they collect and share videos from the experience with their ECE teachers to help build on their language.
