We interact with it.

Bring it in.  Study it. Draw it.

We did just that at a play date at our local conservatory & botanical garden.

No running around inside.

We brought art supplies and paper and set the kids free outside, on the garden grounds.

They knew just what to do,

and were engaged for

and focusing again.

They were absorbed

and
