Attention: kids and parents who are navigating a totally new type of school in the coming weeks! We’re here to help.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll provide some simple nature-oriented activities that you can use to supplement your time spent at home. Feel free to share these ideas with your at-home communities and friends who might want some fresh teaching materials.

Today, join Ariella as she explores the world outside through her senses and creates a Sound Tapestry using only colored pencils, paper, and a comfy spot to sit.
