Play Green and connect more children to nature than ever before
This past month has seen some great wins for children in Canada—from the new Ontario Children’s Outdoor Charter to today’s announcement of the Active at School initiative. It’s never been a better time to think about our children’s health and embrace our own inner child.
So with the holiday season upon us, we’re hoping you’ll take some time to check out the Play Green gifts in our Give Green, Be Green catalogue. You can send a meaningful gift to a friend or loved one that doubles as an opportunity to connect a child in need with the magic of nature.
Have a little fun with it by giving your friends, family, teachers and colleagues the chance to “play” this season! They’re sure to love a gift that will send a kid to Adventure Camp in the city or get their hands dirty building a fort from sticks and natural materials.
Need more convincing? Read this testimonial from a Grade 2–3 teacher who recently brought her class to the school program at Evergreen Brick Works: “For half of my students, this is the first time they have been in a forest, the first time they have played in a creek, the first time they have played in nature.”
And for even more warm fuzzies, watch this video highlighting the Play Green opportunities:
