Free Activities & Resources

We have developed a range of activities and supportive resources to be used at school or in a home learning environment. The activities are designed to support distance learning when necessary, promote health & wellbeingand will also make fun Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) activities whilst at school! Most activities are aimed at 7 - 14yr olds, with some younger children needing assistance.

Nature Connection Activities

There are more than 10 fun activities to choose from that will help tamariki connect to nature either at home or in the classroom. They all download as a pdf,  require minimal resources and are great pre & post activities to support our programmes or to support classroom-based learning.

Wellbeing Resources & Activities

Connecting with nature is one of the ways we can improve our hauora (wellbeing). With tautoko (support) from tauira (students) who graduated our Manaaki Tāpoi programme, we have created a series of videos and activities to share that are designed to provide a wellbeing boost for rangatahi.

Interested in Nature Connection Programmes?

In partnership with local iwi and conservation groups, the Kaimahi for Nature Connection (KFNC) Project seeks to provide nature connection experiences to as many tamariki & rangatahi in schools, iwi and community groups as possible in the Top of the South.
