Priorities for the cooperation with (the) families are the exchange of information, the experience of movement activities as well as the design and arrangement of the moving day nursery.






Family hiking

A trip or hiking-day is used for communication and can help to ensure that the children (maybe even some adults) develop moving rooms and opportunities that exceed the time and personnel frame of the day nursery. Depending on the specific local conditions, the following destinations would be possible: outdoor pools, farms or craft centres, deer parks, climbing, or other territorial hiking attractions. The hiking may be interspersed with games in (the) nature and with natural materials.



Fragments of ideas for games in nature:

Hiding games, catching games, ball games, small relays
Information: make clear agreements on field boundaries, protection of animals and plants!



Fragments of ideas for games with natural materials:

throwing different goals with pine cones, chestnuts, acorns and more

revolve the obstacle course with the support of the parents (walk around trees, crawl by obstacles, skip small ditches, balance on tree trunks, pulling up on branches, climbing, climbing up a tree ...)

building a snow shelter or a sukkah
