SAND DAY SATURDAY
Join us and early childhood specialists and volunteers for Sand Day Saturdays’ activities for toddlers and preschool age children, accompanied by parents. As part of our Children’s Nature Play Programming to encourage children’s discovery, exploration, and creativity through sand play using sand toys and water.
Early childhood development studies show that contact with nature has been associated with a number of health and cognitive benefits for children, such as improved cognitive function, increased creativity, reduced attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms and reduced rates of aggression. The impact of nature or environmental education – experiential learning outside the classroom – enables children to apply their learning in the real world as it ignites creativity and imagination, and connects children and parents to their community.
