Flowers+Play

“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is YOU. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live only as you can.” HYLRIKZ.COM

Today Beatrice and I played with florals and made pretty things to hang around the house. She sang and cut the flowers, pulled a part the strings, and talked about the colors of the flowers. Sometimes the simple projects in life bring a lot of joy and peace to our day. I truly believe when we let our children be creative and playful they find out more about themselves. What they are capable of, what they love, and what they are passionate about.

Make room in your day to connect with nature even if that means a simple walk through the woods, or a nature inspired project. Let your children look and touch and be inspired by what surrounds their life. I find taking a more relaxed approach to parenting leaves room for our children to explore and be who who they are without a constant tickle in their ear reminding them of what they aren’t doing right. Simple nature projects give our children a deep appreciation for the simple pleasures in life and create a respect for beauty that surrounds us each and every day.

This was a small little project that we both did together with various things lying around the house:

+Flowers around the house

+A wooden stick or piece of thin wood

+Various types of string and textures

+Scissors

+And a creative mind, playful hands, and playful hearts:)

+Hang it in the window or above your bed, be creative and bring a little piece of nature into your home!
