Nature’s *P.L.A.Y.ground* is a Feast for Your Senses Throughout the Seasons


Let’s go P.L.A.Y. in nature’s playground and restore our sense of calm through connection to the great outdoors and engaging in curiosity together.


These are some of the top “sense-sational” experiences I’ve had P.L.A.Y.ing in 2020:

*Hearing the buzzing bees while soaking up the warm sunshine on my skin and taking in the scent of summer in bloom in the butterfly garden.

*Listening to the babbling brook as it cascades down the rocky pathway.

*Hearing the birds singing an early morning wake-up call and the owl’s calling out to one another as dusk sets in to say goodnight.

*Watching the young goat kids, only a few months old, butting heads and frolicking about or cuddling one of these newborn cuties up close.

*Feeling the warm sunshine on my back as I P.L.A.Y.ed pick-up-sticks in early spring to create a brush pile.

*Seeing the ducks peeking out between the grasses in the meadow as they gobble up grubs.

*Watching the clouds sail by and a storm roll in.

*Tasting the delicious newly ripened apples in the orchard and the last fresh greens from the gardens.

*Feeling the cold on my lips while tasting the sweet local maple syrup on freshly fallen snow.

*Smelling the apple wood scented smoke outdoors on a winter’s eve from a nearby home burning a fire in a wood stove.

*Breathing in the crisp cold air while walking in the bright light and shadows created under a full moon on a winter’s night.


Nature Noticing is for EVERYONE!


No special equipment or experience is required!

Just pack your senses (+Capkin),

step outdoors,

and

soon the smiles will appear!

🙂

❤ ❤ ❤

Dog, kids, partner, neighbor, friends, or solo – nature P.L.A.Y. is for ALL!

Time to step out your door and experience the magic that nature has in store for you and your family TODAY!

The Mushroom Fan Club

by Elise Gravel


Karen’s P.L.A.Y. previews and companion activity adventures.


 P.L.A.Y.ful story preview:

Simple Mushroom Mastery and Mycologists in the Making

*Must have an enthusiastic favorite adult to advise kiddos on this adventure.

P.L.A.Y.-filled companion activity adventures:

  • Challenge: Are there mushrooms you’ve seen in a nearby forest that are also in this book? What are they? Can you draw or photograph them?
  • Super Challenge: How do you think they came up with such a variety of fun mushroom names and who do you think got to name them?
  • Super-Duper Challenge: Before looking up your next mushroom find be sure to create your own crazy name first and record it in your nature discovery notebook – eyes and all!
  • Super-Duper-Stellar Challenge: Solve this mystery . . .  are mushrooms fungi or are fungi mushrooms?
  • Curiosity REMINDER: As beginners it is best to look with your eyes not your hands so as not to disturb the mushrooms. And ALWAYS check with a person who has experience foraging for mushrooms before even considering eating them. 

Fungi Finding is FUN!
