Incorporating nature items in early childhood programs promotes holistic development, nurtures a sense of environmental responsibility, and cultivates a lifelong love for nature. Educators can stimulate children’s curiosity about the world around them by incorporating natural materials such as leaves, rocks, shells, and flowers. Nature-based sensory play provides opportunities for children to engage their senses, explore different textures, and develop fine motor skills. Additionally, using natural materials in art activities encourages creativity, as children can use leaves, twigs, and other found objects to create unique and meaningful artwork.
