Join us for an online workshop that will offer fun, nature-based activities and games that you could immediately incorporate into your programs with multi-aged children that support physical distancing and outdoor play.
These engaging activities are ideal for small to large circles of children, as most programs and centres are limiting the size of their groups to accommodate new COVID-19 protocols. As children naturally want to be in close contact, these nature-inspired activities will promote playing with each other in a way where physical distancing is part of the fun! Supplies needed: a 2 metre stick!
This workshop will be taking place online via Zoom. Registered participants will be emailed a meeting link.
