Forest Freeplay is playing outside freely in the forest. There is no parental agenda, no nature study planned, no journaling required — nothing but playing in the natural space of the forest.
Think “parkday” without the playground equipment.
But what do kids DO? Yes, that was my first question.
They play. They explore. They challenge themselves physically. The discover. They create. And sometimes they read a book. Or even sit by mom and say “When can we go home? I’m bored (or hungry or hot or cold or tired)?”
Just like at the park. But in the forest. That’s it: Forest Freeplay!
Later this week, I’ll share how I learned about Forest Freeplay & started meeting with other families on a regular basis!
