Sensory Play Outdoors
Landmark 1 (Explore Together Weekly)
The Kawartha Heights Kinders have been busy with Pathway’s Own, Nature Nancy, an outdoor activity consultant who works with Pathway’s Trailblazer schools to get active outdoors. First, they worked with Nature Nancy to create animal homes. The children were given hula hoops and small creatures and then they had to go find elements in nature to create the rest! Then they explored their senses by playing the Owl and Mouse game. Finally, the children had outdoor stations that contained pieces of the story “Over and Under the Snow.” The children had to listen and learn but also use their senses while doing different actions at each station. These sensory activities were a big hit for outdoor play and utilized Landmarks 1, Explore Together Weekly, and Landmark 3, Exercise the Senses Daily.
