CREATIVITY IS SOUL WORK.
- Brene Brown

OVERVIEW:
TERM 2 FOCUS: RESILIENCE
Wild Creative offers organic education through nature craft,
adventurous play and creativity.
Activities are explored more slowly and mindfully with focus allowing children to explore in depth, make their own discoveries and to integrate what they learn in a holistic way.
We build resilience through connection to self, environment and community.

This is an all weather group (unless extreme weather which you'll be notified about). following the inspirational quote:
"there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.'
This helps build resilience physically, mentally and emotionally.
We observe the changes in seasons and gain a greater understanding how the weather affects our moods, the environment  and craft.
We'll create autumn and winter artworks and build a teepee.
There'll be mud play and dancing in the rain.

Designed for 4YO and up.
Whether your child is in school and needs a wellbeing day outside, homeschooled or has the day off, this program is designed for them to recalibrate and self regulate in nature.

IN DEPTH INFO:
Term 2 we explore:
CONNECTING TO the ENVIRONMENT through:
Earth Day pledge art.
Developmentally appropriate risky play with tree climbing, log balancing & jumping.
Digging, foraging, swinging, mixing and splashing.
Independent exploration.
Unstructured, adventurous play in a natural space helps children integrate what they learn.
We forage for our crafts with an appreciation for the environment they come from.
Discussion about trees & nature & gaining insight into how we are nature ourselves.
Discussions about recycling, reusing & limiting our impact on the earth.

TUNE IN TO OURSELVES through:
Nature craft including weaving, making stone paint, leaf stitching, whittling, nature dream catchers, pendulum painting, creating our own talisman and working with tools.
Encouragement of independent thinking and exploration through nature based art practices.
Risky play allows children to become aware of what they’re capable of and develop risk assessment skills.
The natural environment allows children to use muscles that engage their proprioception system (part of the balancing system) which also helps organise sensory input.
Moving naturally also builds strength, balance and agility.

FEELING PART OF THE COMMUNITY through:
Team Games
Sharing stories
Earth Circle + Listening Circle
