Forest Kids for All Ages: Create Community and Get Outdoors!
Friday, Session 2, 2:30–3:30pm

In this session we will explore forest kindergartens, along with practical tips on how to create your own. Forest kindergartens, called “waldkindergartens” in their homelands of Germany and Scandinavia, are fantastic ways for children of all ages to regularly spend time in nature, year-round, with friends. Their motto is: “There’s no bad weather, only bad clothing!” Drawing from her five years of leading forest kindergartens, Marni will share how they have become a central part of her family’s homeschool. Learn how to foster a love of nature in your children while creating a supportive community for both kids and homeschooling parents.
