Living Childhood Outside
* Nature * Explore * Create * Learn

Welcome to Acorns and Aprons, a place where you can find endless inspiration and resources for connecting with nature and fostering your child's curiosity and creativity. Our website is dedicated to promoting outdoor learning, creativity, and exploration through forest school, nature school, and homeschooling. We offer a variety of engaging activities that encourage children to connect with nature, such as original artwork, printables, and nature-inspired crafts. Our mission is to inspire families to spend more time outside, learning, exploring, creating, and foraging together. We firmly believe that connecting with nature is essential for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. So, join us on this beautiful journey and let's discover the wonders of the natural world!  


Learning about Nature helps children build a connection to the natural world. When we teach children the importance of animals, trees and the environment we help foster an ‘Earth Warrior’ who wants to protect lands, oceans and animals, so we can continue living and learning on this beautiful earth.
