Playing with Nature: Supporting Preschoolers’ Creativity in Natural Outdoor Classrooms



“If we encourage children to hone their own imagination and inventiveness, they are less apt to need the transient novelty of a new toy to generate capacity for creative play. We are helping them develop skills and values that lend themselves to better stewardship of the earth and its natural resources.” (Linn, 2008)
