Tuesday's Castle Park event, "Pizzazz a Pumpkin" showed kids how to decorate with nature. They used leaves, sticks, flowers, seeds, and other nature items to decorate their pumpkins. Some kids made faces while others wanted to see how many different nature items they could add.
It was a great turnout for Castle Park and their "Count me in at Castle Park" nature based play.
What is Nature-Based Play? Nature based play puts kids in touch with nature by encouraging them to play with rocks, water, sand, leaves, sticks and other materials found outdoors. It may look more like woods, prairie or garden than a playground. Unlike the open woods though, these spaces usually have a border, so parents know where their kids are, and so kids can play freely.
