Children And Nature Play

It is time to rethink the concept that one focused piece of playground equipment on a flat plane of grass is good enough. The best solution will focus on what is best for our children; the thing they have lost, what we want them to learn, the behaviors we want to encourage, and the obstacles that our modern way of living has presented to them.

Playgrounds should be at the front line in our efforts to address these concerns. By using natural playground components like outdoor musical instruments, hill slides, and logs we engage our children and help fight the trends in childhood obesity, bullying, absenteeism, injury, attention spans, depression, community engagement, and environmental stewardship.

We work extensively and offer a tailored approach with Landscape Architects, Schools, Childcare Facilities, and Municipalities.

  • Keep an eye out for Adam Bienenstock tomorrow night on CTV Kitchener News at Five. Adam joins host Stuart Gooden on “In Your Backyard” as he tours the Bienenstock yard exploring the world of nature play  and  Bienenstock’s unwavering commitment to connect children to nature.
  • We had a great morning filming with Stuart Gooden and Jeff Pagett from @ctvkitchener. Keep an eye out for Adams breakout performance next week when “In Your Backyard” airs on CTV.
  • Sensory tables offer children opportunities to be social, practice fine motor skills, and learn about cause and effect while enjoying the huge sensory component based on what is in the bins. Our two bin sensory table offers double the fun by providing the opportunity to add water to one bin while dry items go in the other. So many possibilities!
  • Happy Holidays from the Nature’s Instruments team!
