Mud pies and daisy chains: Connecting young children and nature
Davis, Julie M. & Elliott, Sue (2004) Mud pies and daisy chains: Connecting young children and nature. Every Child, 10(4), pp. 4-5.
This article does not provide a recipe for how to promote connections with the natural environment in early childhood services, but a rationale. With this rationale in mind, we invite early childhood educators to make mud pies and daisy chains with children for a sustainable future!

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
