Nature Play WA’s mission is to help get more kids playing outside more often, but we know that isn’t easy in the modern technology-infused world. So we've developed a range of free resources as part of a broad strategy to help families find a healthy mix of screen-time and nature play.
Nature Play WA recommends a three-pronged approach to healthy technology use:
Reduce: reducing the time your kids spend on technology, even a little bit, makes a difference
Replace: use active technologies (like Nature Passport) to replace sedentary technologies wherever possible
Balance: balance the time kids spend on sedentary technology with an equal, or greater, amount of time in active play outdoors.
