10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a morning like no other in nature, being creative and practising mindfulness in nature while painting these beautiful bug rocks! We’ll be at Banksia Park, situated on the banks of the Yarra River in Bulleen, a north-eastern suburb of Melbourne, offering plenty of space to explore and nature play.
Your facilitator Hayley is an artist and meditation teacher who has been running workshops and groups for children and young adults for over 5 years. Exploring the uses of mindful art and looking into the benefits of how being out in nature has on of our mental health will be focus for this session and of course, lots of opportunity to play and climb the trees! With a passion for nature based education and sensory play, Hayley creates a nurturing environment where children can just be and enjoy the moment, cultivating a sense of connection to the rhythms of our seasons, land and self.
The session will also include a short meditation in nature.
Eco Explorers is an all-weather outdoor playgroup so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Children must have closed footwear when walking in the bush, sun hats, sunscreen, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and a change of clothes. Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong winds.
