Online Activities and Resources 

 Lets Get Outside!

Welcome to Grow-Wellbeing's free online activity page designed to help you to stay connected to nature through this latest national lockdown. 

Over the next few weeks the GROW forest school team will be posting ideas for nature activities and crafts, family yoga sessions, stories and bushcraft activities for you to join in with. We will also add links to other sites and activities that we think you will love!

We would love to hear from you! Do share anything you discover in nature or a craft activity you've had a go at.

Tag us at #growwellbeingnature on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or email your pics to: contact@grow-wellbeing.com and we'll post them up in our gallery!

We know that connecting with nature has a positive impact on our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. At this challenging time we could all do with a little daily boost. That's why were encouraging the Grow community to take up the challenge of going for a walk for 30 minutes every day for 30 days (we would love it if you carry on after the 30 days too!) #grow30x30

Your walk could be to the park, to the beach, in town or in the suburbs. There is nature all around us and we've got lots of ideas for things that can help you spot it and also practise mindfulness outside. Before you go for a walk, make a note of how you are feeling, then note how far and where you walk. Also make a note of how you feel after your walk and whether there is difference in your mood.

 

Let us know how it goes: email us at contact@grow-wellbeing.com or tag us on Instagram or Facebook posts #grow30x30

Each week, one of our Grow team will share some ideas of how you could make the most of your weekend nature walk.

 

We will add some resources to help you enjoy, explore and identify the nature that is right there on our doorsteps. Walking is a great way to be mindfulness, reduce stress, anxiety 

and increasing your health and wellbeing!

Amazing nature facts...

Fractal patterns are extremely familiar, since nature is full of fractals. Examples include trees, rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds, seashells, hurricanes, etc. You can find out more about fractals here.

 

Have look and see if you can find some fractals in your garden or on your walk to the park or woods. 

Stories and Poems

Listen to Liz on a lockdown visit to our site at Bidston Hill reciting from the Longfellow's poem, The Song of Hiawatha.

We would like to hear from you. If there are any nature stories or poems you would like to hear or that you would like to share with the rest of the Grow community.
