Playdate with Nature


Playdate with Nature

Tuesday, March 26

1 PM - 2:30 PM

All Ages


Move your kids outdoors for unstructured seasonal play, proven healthful and beneficial. Celebrate seasonal fun outdoors, paint with mud, build mini habitats for toy animals and use natural materials and your imagination for creation. Nature provides infinite possibilities to express creativity. See how nature ignites a spark in everyone.

As kids explore and play in nature they gain confidence, build skills, and use their imagination. Children who connect with nature may be more inventive and better problem-solvers. Adults learn the benefits of outdoor play, while kids experience it.

FREE. Adult supervision required. 


Meet at Lakewood Winter Sports Area, east side of Fairfield Rd. Follow signs to meeting area.

Email with questions or to inquire about accommodations.
