Films to Encourage Play and Movement in Nature with Your Little Ones

Since COVID-19 has made it impossible for our Welcome Project classes to take place in person, we’ve been thinking creatively about how to take some of the feelgood benefits of dance and movement to our participants in Brighton & Hove.

Still from Down to the Water by Anne Colvin

We recently commissioned dance artist and creative practitioner Anne Colvin to produce a series of short films designed to encourage the children of Brighton’s Puffin Nursery to play and move in nature. Now these charming films are available here for all children aged two and above and their families to enjoy, inspiring connection with any natural environments you might have access to. Press play below to start the film and, as is written at the start of each video, “watch, notice, talk, join in, pause, move your bodies, make some stories, replay, enjoy.”
