I think it’s a wonderful thing that children should be encouraged to learn about the natural world; the simplicity and the complexity of its form, through play and experimentation.
We love that there is so much to see and learn in nature and that we have a hand in our own learning. Curiosity, wonder, freedom and joy are requisites for discovering the many miracles in natures design and that it connects us directly to the world around us.
The Smart Happy Project is reconnecting us with the fact we are living in a world full of amazing natural miracles and astounding beauty.
It’s funny how one tiny shift in awareness can really enrich your appreciation of nature. I love that my children and I are not talking about maths in an abstract way, but rather linking it to the world around us, seeing patterns and shapes everywhere.
