Nature play spaces contain mainly natural materials designed to encourage hands-on manipulation and discovery. Natural elements provide inspiration, allowing children to shape their environment and at the same time, exercise judgment and fine motor skills. These activities motivate cooperation through play and encourage social interaction.
Nature play spaces help children understand, appreciate and value nature’s ecosystems. Frequent visits to a nature play space foster a kinship with nature and promote a greater understanding of our place in the natural world.
