The season of summer brings a natural feeling of fun and relaxation and is the perfect time to be creative in the activities you do with your kids. School is out and you have time to be together. It’s this time of the year we plan our family vacations and knowing the Benefits of connecting children with nature, we decided to go on nature walks and trekking to admire and be inspired by the all that nature offers.
Trek to Mullayanagiri peak in Karnataka, India
We stayed in a cosy homestay at Chikmaglur and went on early morning nature walks.

Just like a vitamin, contact with nature and green environments is needed in regular doses.
The positive impacts of connecting children with nature include:
• Supports creativity and problem solving
• Enhances cognitive abilities
• Improves academic performance
• Reduces Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) symptoms
• Increases physical activity
• Improves eyesight
• Improves social relations
• Improves self-discipline
• Reduces stress
