Cultivating Natural Playgrounds Workshops Series: Down & Dirty

The sensory experience that soil provides is invaluable for young children. Although educators and families may not always be comfortable with children getting truly dirty, it’s important for children to have the earthy opportunity to play and explore with dirt.  Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds facilitated this fun, hand on workshop where participants learned how to engage children in getting down and dirty.

What Participants Had to Say

“This information will help me set up new invitations for the children to explore, encouraging them to get interested in dirt.”
“I will be sharing the math, science, and literacy inquiries and provocations information with co-workers and parents.”
“This workshop was a fun reminder that dirt is good for our immune system. I enjoyed learning how to engage the children with dirt.”
