From late summer frolics to chilly winter hikes that end round a crackling fire, the children who participate in Muddy Boots, a new forest play group at Bernheim, enjoy extended nature play in all kinds of weather.
This forest play group is an opportunity for children ages 3-6 to enjoy free play in the woods in a program modeled after forest kindergarten, an educational approach of child-led, play-based learning in nature. In this three-hour program, held monthly at the Woodland Pavilion and the forest across the street, children spend most of their time outdoors in all seasons exploring the woods and the nearby creek and playing and enjoying activities around the cabin. They nearly always go home with muddy boots! Snacks are provided, but children bring lunch and a water bottle. Dressing appropriately for the weather is a must.
