RPPN Children’s Tour

An authentic activity that includes playful and educational gardening experiences and encourages children to learn about materials that “come from the earth”. Along the way, there is a “sensory journey” for children to discover the smells, tastes, textures, colors and sounds of nature. All of this takes place at the Rio do Brasil RPPN, making the experience even more authentic and educational.

The experience begins with the agroforestry system and gives the children the opportunity to observe the planting of cassava and corn, as well as learn about different types of wood.

They then visit the organic garden. They learn about vegetables and the benefits of organic food. The little ones also choose a seedling to plant – which remains in the seedbed with the name of the child responsible for planting it. 

It comes from the earth
The next activity is called “It comes from the Earth”. In this activity, our team shows how everyday things like plastic, glass and straw have some connection to the earth. It also emphasizes the importance of taking care of the planet.

Sensorial Journey
Afterwards, the children are invited to participate in an experience that will take them on a journey through their five senses. During the sensory journey, each child is encouraged to notice the difference in the smells, tastes, textures, and colors of the plants, as well as listen to the soothing sound of the water in a fountain.

Lastly, the children will return to the reception area of the Pousada Tutabel and will be provided with brushes, paints and wooden signs. The idea is for the children to translate their perceptions of the tour into art. The painting can be taken home or displayed at the RPPN reception.

The children’s itinerary is adapted to their age and the activity is suitable for the whole family. In fact, parents will not only be amazed by their children’s discoveries, but will also have the opportunity to interact and learn during the tour.
