It can be hard to figure out how to balance letting kids fall in love with nature and teaching them to protect it, but what could be more important for the future of our kids and our green spaces. We're hoping this helps—and makes you smile!

Have you ever noticed your child repeating a very particular -- and maybe even peculiar! -- behavior when they play? Though it might seem random to adults, this is actually common for kids ages 1 ½ to as old as 8. All over the world, kids naturally focus on these same, simple actions when they play.
