How about trying something a little different on your daily walks, whether on the weekend or during rāhui? Here are a few ideas that our teachers have suggested.
Rainbows have been a significant symbol during Rāhui, rainbows can represent positivity and support. The idea is that on your nature walk you find something for every colour of the Rainbow.
Here are some ideas of what you could create with all the beautiful natural treasures you find while on your Rainbow walks. These are what we call ‘loose parts’.
Another name for these walks can be a scavenger hunt! It’s a good fun to spot different items while having a good look at nature’s beauty during the different seasons.
Put your ‘magic lenses’ on and have a wonderful and fun adventure with your family! We wonder what you will see while outdoors? Can you hear and feel it? Will you be able to spot all the things on the list?
Here’s another idea that can help brighten and lighten up your day. Make a list of the things you are grateful for in your lives. Then when you go for your walk keep an eye out for the things on your “gratitude list“. It can be anything! You could be thankful for the rain because it waters your plants, or the sun because it gives you warmth, it could be your bike that you may take like to ride instead of walking. You will find out that there are lots of things to be grateful for.
Our children are growing up in unpredictable times, so it is important to keep these positive rituals in their lives. Always remember there is something to be grateful about. Have fun Treetops tamariki! We are sure you’ll find many things that warm your heart.
