Exploring Nature in Winter Master Class

Victoria Hackett

Hello Winter Explorers,

Do you not know what to do with children outdoor during these cold winter months?

Does your mind want to go outside and do amazing activities, but your body says “Uh…let’s just stay inside.”

And when your kids ask you about the next time they’ll get to go out, you’re left looking like a deer caught in headlights. You don’t know what to say because you don’t have a plan or any systems in place for cold weather to play outdoors in winter.

Hey, I get it. Just last week, I was talking to a room full of teachers and they were perplexed as to what to do with their children outdoors. “It’s too cold”, “It’s too icy.” “It takes up too much time.”

It’s normal to want to curl up and snuggle through the cold winter months. But while skipping outdoor time may seem like a great idea at the moment, it can be a problem for everyone in the long run. Germs, lack of exercise, and boredom quickly result in behavior problems and sick, miserable, unengaged kids.

What if instead of complaining about the cold and looking at the kids blankly, you had hot lesson plans for any cold winter day?

What if both you and your kids could kick the winter blues and enjoy all winter has to offer. The nip in the air, the bird songs, and maybe some hot chocolate as you explore the outdoors.

In the Exploring Nature in Winter Master Class, you’ll lose the winter blues and discover different ways to connect children with nature, no matter the weather.

What teachers are saying: 

Dear Victoria,
My big goal was to get more winter activities. I feel like I got more than that. I have a good inspiration to go out more even if I was a teacher feel like not going out on a day because it is too foggy and cold and I just want to be inside. This happened one day during this winter: it was very bad weather and not my teaching partner or I wanted to go outside. But we did since it was a forest walk day. The kids had so much fun jumping into the puddles, splashing the icy water. As we were walking back to the school, for those 20 minutes it started to snow. It was our gift :o) We tried to catch the snowflakes with our tongue and in our hand and we could explore the different shapes of the snowflakes. It was a great day for us! I think this is my big take away to go out and just enjoy what is there. This is what I know now among so many practical “good to knows”. Thank you. ~ TM Budapest, Hungary
