Hey 👋 friend. Are you hungry?angry? Lonely? Tired? HALT! Probably if you are a parent. Maybe, More so a homeschooling parent.⠀ .⠀ We do everything for our kids. Sometimes that’s the hardest boundary to set. ⠀ .⠀ How do you “play”? How do schedule self care into you day? I’m not talking about manis, pedis, massages and trips. Those are fun but sometimes unrealistic. I will listen to a podcast while I do the dishes, I wake up early and make my coffee, walk out side to get the mail alone! Play in my garden, pet the dog. Just little things.⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #homeschool #creativekids #thefutrue #homeschoolok #homeschoolersrock #unschool #forestschool #natureschool #resepectfulparent #empathicparent #creativefamilies #farmschool#homesteadersofig #homeschoolmom #homeschoolblog#thehumblehomeschoolhivequotes #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolquotes#homeschoolhomestead #thehumblehomeschoolhive

At Roots Of Connection, our meals are a big part of our learning experience. For some kids, unfamiliar foods can be intimidating, so we make it fun in our own special ways. As always, our meals are organic, vegetarian, and delicious! #funwithfood #playwithfood #farmtopreschool #kidseathealthy #eatyourvegetables #seattle #seattlepreschool #forestschool #forestkindergarten #seattlekindergarten #seattlefoodie
Bunji makes character building a priority in our module, because “if a child can hold a pencil, write their own name, count to 100, recognise all the colours and shapes, BUT doesn’t know how to make friends, manage their own emotions and resolve conflicts, be independent and have self-help skills, NONE of the other stuff matters.” 🌿 . #flourishingfoundation #bunjifamily #playbasedlearning #letthemplay #playtray #forestschool #reggioemilia #eylf #kajang #tadikakajang #tadikamalaysia #bangi #tadikabangi #tadikaislam #islamicpreschool #kajangpreschools #reggioinspired #earlychildhoodeducation #pendidikanawalkanakkanak #playschoolkajang

We’re so excited to be featured in the Philomath Express this week on Brad’s Blog! @philomathexpress “Interesting option to early childhood education” “the idea is that children are natural learners and they are innately curious and they are pretty good at regulating themselves if you let them and give them the time to practice.” “The coyote is kind of our mascot,” Crosby said. “We howl altogether as coyotes and we run around the field howling.” #philomathfrolicandrodeo #corvallisoregon #forestschool Click here to access the whole article; https://www.gazettetimes.com/blogs/brad-fuqua/brad-s-blog-interesting-option-to-early-childhood-education/article_5368a729-2555-5541-88d7-90e93fcbfe60.html
Nothing beats exploring ice on cold days like this. Our preschoolers constantly find new ways to find, and break it into tiny pieces. Thy can’t wait until the ice on the pond is thick enough to walk on. To be honest, we can’t either. #ice #rewilding #naturepreschool #winter #nature #cold #childhoodunplugged #optoutside #crunchy #runwildmychild #forestschool #kidsoutdoors #bushcraft #forestpreschool #wildchild #outdoorlearning #wildandfreechildren #outdoors #natureplay #wildcraft #sustainableliving #primitiveskills #buildcommunity #outdoorkids #neverstopexploring #rewildingschool #hudsonvalley #wildernessclass
Just before Christmas we went to a group called badger Mummas @badgerforest . It is such a wonderful group set in the heart of the forest, created with lots of love, warmth and magic. We had so much fun, Mummy even got to eat home made brownie, drink (alcohol free) mulled wine and meet some lovely people. The babies mostly loved being there, Carter was a little unsure when he wasn’t held, as he fell face first into the mud 🙈 we even got our craft on and attempted to make a heart. Thank you for having us @badgerforest ! Bookings now open for their 2019 classes (Monday’s 12pm - 1:30pm) I highly recommend! #forest #hunter #oakley #forestschool #baby #toddler #triplets #brothers #nature #love #family #muddy
Students from Sussex Regional High School Child Studies class paid us a visit this morning! They spent time at Forest School and Lisa’s Playhouse!

The salt shakers were a huge hit for explorers of all ages. The older ones really got into watching how it changed the ice, how it sped up the melting process and made the top almost pitted. The younger ones just wanted to pour it out--be it on a frozen treasure or not!⠀ ⠀ #tinkergarten #wintertinkergarten #frozentreasures #wildandfreechildren #letthembelittle #letkidsbekids #natureplayground #outdoorclassroom #outdoorlearning #forestschool #growingupoutdoors #childhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #kidsoutwild #tinybigadventure #letthemexplore #livingclassroom #charlotte #charlottenc #noda
The endless possibilities a little bit of food colouring, water, various measuring cups, spoons, recycling and snow can bring!! 🎨 These little ones got so creative with their various mixtures and shared everything with ease. I think they could have played with their coloured slush and ice cream, mini snowmen and other inventions all morning, but of course we had to get our dose of vitamin N too! #natureeducation #naturepreschool #loosepartsplay #colourtherapy #forestschool #forestandnatureschool #everydayplayhacks #snowfun #outdooreducation #secwepemcterritory #chasebc #sorrentobc #pritchard
Logi Bear and Paca! What can I say ? I absolutely love how they’ve become such great friends, they don’t have to be doing anything special or elaborate! They just love to be in each other’s company. Socialisation isn’t about being in a room full of people and feeling you have to talk to everyone. It’s about having special friendships and just being happy with their company. . . . . . . #spiritandbear #homeeducator #imagination #friendship #forestschool #homeschool #iteach4th #iteach #homeeducation #socialization #beingsocial #greatfriends #kidsactivities #happy #earlychildhoodeducation #learningthroughplay #teachersofinstagram #parenting #letthemexplore #teaching #letthembekids #playtime #bestfriends #homeschooling #education #ourlife
We have fossils 🐚 at Into Nature Forest School! It was fun exploring the rocks and hunting for them. Your child could bring home a 🐚 that is millions of years old. There are just a couple of spaces left for our Fridays in term one, so don't miss out! 🌲👦👧🌲 #intonatureforestschool #hamiltonforestschool #forestschool #natureschool #backtonature
La nostra és ja una relació consolidada, són molts anys junts i encara et trobo molt guapa, acollidora... Fins i tot la teva llum em sorpren sovint, tot i haver-te mirat i fotografiat mil cops, per tot costat. Sempre surts bé, però a vegades millor. Hem viscut moltes hores plegats, molts bons moments i altres no tant, també algún de dolent que han quedat gravats a la memòria. De la mateixa manera, amb tu he rebut grans notícies i algunes de tràgiques també. En fi, com la vida mateixa. I el que ens queda, espero, no voldria pas que ningú peses que això és un comiat, ben al contrari, un homenatge carinyós. I m’aturo un moment i penso que encara et trobo molt guapa, cada mati, quan entro a treballar, amb tu... Ours is already a consolidated relationship, they are many years together and I still find you very nice, cozy ... Even your light often surprises me, despite having watched and photographed thousands of times, everywhere. Always go well, but sometimes better. We have lived many hours together, many good times and others not so much, also some of the bad ones that have been recorded in memory. In the same way, with you I have received great news and some tragic as well. In short, like life itself. And what we have left, I hope, I do not want anyone to think that this is a goodbye, on the contrary, a caring tribute. And I'm dying for a moment and I think I'm still very pretty, every morning, when I go to work, with you ... #alex_sirera #asireraimatges #asirerasensacions #casaxifra #escolagraria #escolaforestal #forestschool #feina #job

I love the simple things. Diamonds are beautiful but I get as much joy from finding a exquisite leaf or a little mushroom that's just about to pop out of the ground. How about you?

...just like a blank canvas, the woods offers up unlimited possibilities. The children made their own natural paintbrushes as we had conveniently 'forgotten' our brushes at the setting! Such a sense of calm as they painted and sang a beautiful song (on stories) 🧡 these are precious moments. At the beginning of the session they role played as they stuck their woolly hats onto long sticks creating the stick family...completely child led! #forestschool #beautifulmoments #dayslikethese #blankcanvas #imagination #worldstheiroyster #andourstoo #keepongrowing #andgoing #unlimitedpossibilities #naturelover #communication #socialskills #empathy #physicalskills #finemotor #grossmotor #schema #eyfs #cherishdaynursery #sydenham
Sooooo much creativity comes from the children when we give them the opportunity to develop their ideas with woodwork. Three year olds concentrating for 30 mins or more too, amazing. #woodworking #earlyyears #concentration #creative #imagination #forestschool #sculptures
Do you know what this is? This is not a moss or a fungi, it’s called lichen. This stuff is a composite organism meaning it’s made up of two organisms: algae and fungus. The algae provides the food and the fungus provides the shelter in this symbiotic relationship. Lichen grows everywhere and on every continent. Try to spot some where you live. #lichen #outdooreducation #learntheoutdoors #natureiscool #forestschool #natureschool #learnoutside #naturebasedlearning #green #ecology #forestecosystems #learnsomethingnew #wildandgrowing

It’s been a while so hello, im Ellie and I run Wonderwood Explorers with the help of my amazing mum, an ex teacher and head of an upper primary school. I got my qualifications with the @surreywildlifetrust and have been running forest school sessions for 16 months. . I have worked with children in education, entertainment and play for over 10 years and am passionate about the importance of play and a connection to nature. I believe a connection to nature develops great kids and great adults and while helping them we interns benefit. . #makingwinter #winterdays #aseasonalshift #thiswinter #embrassingtheseasons #stillswithstories #themidwintermovment #scrumptiouswinter #slowliving #slow #mindfulness #artofslowliving #slowlivingforlife #forestschool #forestschoolleader #getthemoutside #wildchild #outdooreducation #explorer #wonderwoodexplorers #lovenature #rasingawildchild #toddlernatureplay #seasonalplay #kidsnaturecrafts #openendedplay #hampshirelife #surreymummy #woodlandplay
With only 5 months to go we thought we’d give you our 5 festival favourites 💚 ⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2TITBJJ⠀ ⠀ #whatson #fabfive #acousticstage #wild #yoga #yogalovers #fitness #forestschool #wildplay #festival #derbyshire
Some of the smalls took my camera off around the woodland to record the new shoots they spotted amongst the bare branches. We’ll revisit these photos to practice winter tree I.D. At first glance the woodland seems in deep winter sleep. Yet once your eyes start to spot new shoots and growth it is suddenly apparent everywhere. The children start to view the trees in detail to see the changes 💚
The children started building their own obstacle course. At first it was a simple construction made of some planks of wood and a pallet. However, more and more children became involved and each wanted to put their own extension onto the course until we had a collaboration and negotiation of ideas that resulted in children having to jump through, or tiptoe around the circumference of tyres, balance up slopes, bounce over gaps between logs and wiggle under bridges. Being able to have autonomy over their physical challenges demonstrates that our Little Forest Folk-ers have a high, yet realistic expectation over their own capabilities and managed risks really well. It was also a joy to see older children cheering on younger children or being supportive with a hand to hold when needed!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #outdoornursery #forestschool #natureplay #playtherapy #learnthoughplay #playbasedlearning #naturebased #freeplay #rewild #ecotherapy #naturetherapy #earlychildhoodeducation #invitationtoplay #mindfulplay #naturelovers #naturalchildhood #playoutdoors #wildandfreechildren #freeandwild #magicofchildhood #littleforestfolk

Roughed out this Black Walnut ladle from a beautiful crook. I love how easy Black Walnut will split, sadly couldn't get two spoons.. hopefully the knot at the end of the bowl doesn't cause any issues 🤔🤔 I have plenty of this black walnut left as well as tons of cherry for anyone who is looking for greenwood! Also, the peach tree fairy called and I should be getting a small load of peach wood!!

Our first Forest School session at The Hive took place this morning. It was quite chilly but we wrapped up warm and kept moving. We’re learning the rules of Forest School, including walking around the outside of the log circle. We built a den using tarpaulin and ropes, used tools to cut sticks and explored our new environment. We’ve been successful in our application to the Woodland Trust so have trees being delivered in March. . . . . #earlyyearseducation #earlyyearsideas #nurseryteacher #forestschool #outdoorlearning #outdoorplay #getoutdoors #muddyfun #preschoolteacher #forestschoolleader

Couldn’t resist posting one more cast, this time from this morning with Year 1 @durlstoncourt. Alder is monoecious, which means that both male and female flowers are found on the same tree. Male catkins are yellow and pendulous, measuring 2–6cm. Female catkins are green and oval-shaped, and are grouped in numbers of three to eight on each stalk. Once pollinated by wind, the female catkins gradually become woody and appear as tiny, cone-like fruits in winter. They open up to release seeds, which are dispersed by wind and water. #aldercast #plastercast #naturecasting #forestschool #newforest
Answer to yesterday's post: you were all correct! When a chimpanzee's hair is on end it can signal surprise, excitement, anger, or aggression. Rocky also has the distinction of silver-tipped hair which can sometimes cause his hair to look a little more crazy. :) Photo: Rocky in both calm and alert states. #chimpanzeeconservationcenter #chimpanzee #wildlifesanctuary #wildlife #keepwildlifewild #wildlifeconservation #forestschool #savetheplanet #earthlings #guinea #westafrica #notapet #wildanimal #animalrights #protectnature #biodiversity #orphan #illegalpettrade #sustainabledevelopment #raisingawareness #racingextinction #wildandfree #bush #nature
Found this batch of Monotropa uniflora, the Indian pipe or ghost plant while exploring our #island on #GeorgianBay it does not convert the sun’s energy to food using chlorophyll like green plants do. Instead it steals its supply of energy from fungi, which nearby conifers provide sugars to. #plants @prilaga #forestschool #georgianbay #forages #plantsmakepeoplehappy #prilaga #georgianbayislands #plants #plantstagram #georgianbayforever #forage #foraged #georgianbaylife #forests #forestsoul
Geçtiğimiz haftasonu @orrmanya da çok güzel bir haftasonu geçirdik. Alanında uzman birbirinden değerli üç doğa eğitmenimiz ile Doğa Okulu çalışmalarımıza başladık. Soğuk havaya aldırış etmeden tüm haftasonu ormanyadaydık. @umitmalkocoglu ile doğa kaşifleri programıyla doğa gözlemi yaparak ormanda yaşayan canlıların hayatlarına bir ışık tutarken, @tugbatpl ile çevre dedektifleriyle çevre sorunları karşı farkındalık yarattık, son olarak @ayseduralioglu ile orman sanat atölyesinde doğanın sanatına tanık olduk. Onlarca çocuğun gönlüne girdik, doğayı keşfetme merakı uyandırdık. Kısacası doğanın ayrılmaz bir parçası olan çocuklar ile biraraya getirdik. Siz de ücretsiz eğitimlere katılmak için lütfen @orrmanya hesabını takip esin. Ayrıntılı bilgi için 02623316611 nolu telefonu arayabilirsiniz. Dört mevsim devam edecek olan Doğa Okulu etkinliklerimize tüm çocuklarımızı bekliyoruz. #ormanya #keşşaf #KeşfetmekDoğamızdaVar #doğaokulu #forestschool #doğa #ormanokulu #sanat #kaşif
