Five Questions in Nature

This week we invite you to explore your curiosity and discover new mysteries. Every day or night go outside and focus on one thing in nature (the bird in the tree, a flower, the sound of the wind). Examine it while using all your senses and ask 5 questions about what you’re observing. You do not need to find the answers so feel free to make the questions as wild as the curiosities that come to you: “What exactly is the reason for a mosquito’s existence?” for example, is one we hear a lot from the children. What other questions come to you?

More about the newsletter:

This summer we will continue offering inspirations for fun and safe ways to get outside. We will be sharing our “Daily Dip” on Mondays and our “Weekend Wilding” on Fridays.

Daily Dips are a way to take your connection deeper with little time needed from you and your family. It is a small activity to do Monday – Friday to practice healthy habits and notice consistent patterns to build your relationship with the natural world. And don’t worry – even if you only get to it one day a week, it can still improve your mental and physical health.

The Weekend Wilding will be a bigger adventure of exploration and discovery, encouraging you to open your curiosities and bring a smile to your face.

If you’re still hungry for nature connection ideas, we plan to continue updating our resource portal with more crafts, games, stories, recipes and more. If you have ideas for ways to continue filling that portal with helpful resources, let us know!
