With an increasing number of children suffering from anxiety and stress, parents are being urged to consider a simple and free way to help their kids cope. It’s known as nature therapy, and today thousands of WA kids ditched the iPads to promote getting outside and having some good old fashioned fun.
Making paper bark boats, building cubbies and skimming rocks, important work that experts say must take priority in our busy tech-filled lives. Hundreds of families, including the Premier and his wife and kids, came to Kings’ Park Naturescape today, as part of Nature Play WA’s event to encourage more people to enjoy more time in our state’s national parks.
