9:30 am - 11:30 am
Join us for an afternoon of nature connection, yoga and beach play at Seaford Beach Reserve.
We’ll start off with some sensory play activities and nature crafts, followed by some gentle and fun yoga on the beach. Can you stand like a sea star or breathe deeply like pufferfish? Children will learn about our amazing marine life through movements and games.
Our workshop facilitator Alicia is deeply passionate about creatively engaging people with themselves and nature for their associated well-being benefits as well as the correlated preservation of our environment. A yoga teacher and Artist at heart, she has been facilitating nature play based workshops for children and families through various community art projects.
Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for school, both physically and emotionally. Our playgroups are also a time for parents to disconnect from their busy lives (and technology) and re-connect with their child in nature. This time is as much for you as it is for your child.
This session is an all weather outdoor event 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.
Ages: 4 – 8 years (siblings under 12 months are welcome to attend for free).
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living” David Attenborough
