Wednesday October 18 – Theme: Take Me Outside Day + Nature Art!

Take Me Outside Day has always been about simply making time to head outside and learn beyond the four walls of a classroom. But this year we want to celebrate in a way like never before.

During the week of October 16th – 20th, head outside with your learners, and make your own version of nature art with found and foraged materials. Then, either email us the photos, or post it on social media with the hashtag #TakeMeOutsideDay. We can’t wait to see what you create. Then stay tuned as we create a giant collaborative mosaic out of the entries!

Engaging with nature and making art have many proven benefits for all ages. Explore the resources below to get started, and let us know if you have any favourites to share! Our inbox is always open:
