Lil Bellies strive to inspire kids and families to connect, discover and explore the wonders of Nature through our designs and supplies.
We believe that the most memorable childhood experience is built from moments of freedom, fantasy, and discovery spent in the natural wildness.
In an age where the culture is television, tablets, and cell phones, today's child spends very little time in contact with animals, trees, flowers, rivers and creeks.
Lil Bellies is dedicated to raising awareness to the importance of Nature in a child's life.
"Children need out-of-door nature in their every-day life! A robust body of research conducted in recent years indicates contact with nature relieves symptoms of ADD and ADHD, lowers stress levels and anxiety, replenishes the power to focus, and cultivates a sense of community. We humans evolved and adapted within the natural world, surviving as a result of this integral relationship. There is no doubt in my mind that children need to balance their technology time with Natural-world time in order to thrive and grow in sustainable ways."
