Connecting to nature can restore our sense of wellbeing. For children, this connection is best made through play – whether outdoors in nature or indoors with natural elements.
This Paint a Stone Animal activity from Fields in Trust can be done at home with stones you collect from the garden or when you’re out for a walk. Why not use them to decorate a nature-themed cubby? Or display them in your window for passers by to see!
Discover more activities for kids from Fields in Trust as part of their Bringing Parks to You initiative. Fields in Trust is a UK charity that champions and supports our parks and green spaces by protecting them for people to enjoy in perpetuity.
