Wild Schooling with Nicolette Sowder
019 Wild Schooling with Nicolette Sowder
You’ve heard of homeschooling, but how about wildschooling?
Nicolette Sowder is the creator of Wilder Child and the wildschooling Facebook group, which has grown to over 17,000 members! Nicolette started blogging at Wilder Child as a way to connect with other parents that love to get outdoors.
The Wilder Child community is for those who are passionate about raising a Wilder Child and getting back to nature. Nicolette coined the term “Wildschooling” as an extension of this, for families who are passionate about supporting a nature-based, active, and joyful childhood.
While Nicolette’s family purchased a farm and are literally able to homeschool their children with a focus on nature and farm life, you don’t have to do all of this to reap the benefits!
The Wildschooling group is open to everyone, whether you’re able to spend a little time outdoors or a lot! You can learn from and exchange ideas with like-minded people for exploring life outdoors!
You’ll want to join the private Facebook group for fun nature ideas and group that loves to get their children outdoors as much as you do. Check out Nicolette’s website, Wilder Child, for nature crafts and to sign up for her newsletter.
Slow Down Challenge
No matter which direction I look in our yard right now, there is some small sign of fall. The abundance and fruits of summer are giving way and letting go. A yellowing leaf, a fading flower – when we take note, these small happenings serve as reminders to slow down and simplify.
Paradoxically so many of us tend to accelerate this time of year putting our foot on the gas and don’t taking it off until after the holiday season. But not this time! This year I’ve created something to help us fall into a gentle stroll while the rest of the world rushes ahead.
Does this resonate? Then that’s your cue to join me for The 30 Day Slow Down Childhood Challenge (it’s free)!
This challenge is for you if you:
🌿 Often feel you are on autopilot, busy and “one step ahead” of yourself
🌿 Want simple ideas for connecting and realigning as a family
🌿 Need a supportive community interested in living life in the slow lane

Join and get access to:
🐌 A 30 day calendar of ideas for relishing and slowing down childhood

If you’re interested in the official Slow Down Childhood poster, you can purchase the art print below. I have this up in my daughters’ room to remind them that they always have time.
Check out this great MSR Windburner stove system, perfect for sipping your tea outdoors! I’ve been wanting to get one of these to keep in my car.
