CONNECTING THE CHILD TO MOTHER EARTH’S HEART
Fostering a deep love and connection with nature. Encouraging children to explore and celebrate their unique sense of creativity.
Educating the Heart through Nature Art is a 12-chapter journey that walks educators through a series of exercises and activities designed to open the mind and heart, and draw on the many benefits of creative play in nature.
Nature nurtures the soul, mind and heart, but so many of today’s children rarely play outside and explore nature, and this is damaging to their long term health and well being.
These art activities engage children with nature in a way that develops a quest for knowledge, a foundation of respect and gratitude, and an appreciation for all life.
This journey helps children discover the wonder and adventure that can be found everywhere, it helps develop the creative mind … and they find strength through a deeper connection to our natural world.
Educating the Heart through Nature Art develops skills that help our children grow into strong, grounded adults who walk through life with a sense of confidence and respect for both ourselves and our environments.
It’s a beautiful journey of discovery for both the child and the adult.
Peace, joy and imaginative play become life’s constant companions when the heart is open to the benefits of nature.
“If a child is to keep alive her inborn sense of wonder, she needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with her the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson ”
My hope is that this Nature Art program will inspire you to nurture in each child, a healthy harmonious relationship with all of life. These beautiful nature based art activities connect the child to nature’s rich and diverse beauty and wonder. I look forward to you joining us on this sacred journey, love and peace Marghanita x
