Gumboot Kids Curriculum

"Children today spend less time outdoors than any generation in human history. Yet we know that a daily dose of nature makes kids smarter, more curious and creative. It’s simple: Kids need more nature! The Gumboot Kids is an excellent teaching tool..." - Ian Hanington, Senior Editor, David Suzuki Foundation

The Gumboot Kids invite children to experience the wonders of nature. This collection will inspire kids to get outside and give them ideas about how to engage with nature once they are there. Curriculum guides offer opportunities for hands-on learning, physical activity and crafts. The guides also further explore the concept of mindfulness.
