PASSPORT FOR KIDS SERIES
The idea for the Passport for Kids guides came from daily walks exploring my new neighbourhood after moving from the city to South Coast NSW. The nature I was seeing literally stopped me in my tracks, and I noticed how much calmer and happier I was feeling.
During this time, we were all experiencing a difficult period of fires, floods, then COVID resulting in a rise in mental health issues in children. I believed I could help by offering a guide to mindfully exploring nature, while at the same time having fun.
The Passports are designed for kids and families to explore like a tourist, no matter whether you're local or a visitor. The itineraries are made for inquisitive minds, featuring unique habitats to visit, colour in and write about as you go. Bursting with fun facts about local wildlife and mindful nature-based activities, each Passport is designed to help kids slow down, experience and learn to identify nature, and understand the world around them.
They have been super popular with young families and grandparents offering ideas for things to do and spending quality time together.
