Share Your Love for God’s Creation With Children You Love

When people lose touch with nature, caring about Creation isn’t a priority. Engage the children in your life in nature activities, such as the ones here, and create a sense of wonder. Talk about the delight in God’s creation you feel. You’ll be planting seeds of caring—and having a good time!

These Tips and images come from Deb Smith, a retired deacon in The United Methodist Church, who early in her career was also interpretive naturalist and children’s curriculum editor. Recently, with COVID restrictions, she has been rediscovering and photographing nature in her own backyard and now sharing it with you. Enjoy!

You may choose to use any or all of these Tips. Cut-and-paste to put them in whatever means of communication you are using to reach out to your congregation, family, or friends. Or simply Forward them.
