Join E.A.T. South and environmental educator and author Renee Simmons Raney as we explore the natural world through fairy houses. Building fairy houses gives children, ages 7-107, an opportunity to balance their play time away from the world of technology. A daily dose of nature will improve attention, focus, and memory. Nature also has a healing power, improving children’s cognitive development. Creative play in nature nurtures language and collaborative skills, awareness, reasoning and observational skills. Creative nature play helps to instill a sense of place and connectivity through observation.
