Sensory-rich outdoor activities: connecting people with the outdoors

Nature postcards

 

using a nature postcard to spot wildlife

This activity helps orientate people to the season and the weather and is both fun to make and fun take part in. By looking out for certain seasonal characteristics and clues in our local environment we are able to orientate ourselves which in turn can reduce stress and anxiety. This is a simple activity that can be repeated many times and is great fun to get the whole family involved. Simply choose a selection of images representing different that you might find outside

Our simple how-to video will guide you through the step by step instructions so you can create your own nature postcards.

 

You can print a postcard template or create your own.
