    Forest is a place that offers children countless possibilities for exploration and creativity, various sensory, emotional and motor experiences. For children, natural environments mean new, different barriers and challenges and in resolving these they are mentally motivated. In the forest, children dispose of a large amount of natural material that they use in various ways and show their imagination. It represents a place where active learning of children takes place. During the playing in the forest, all children are active in doing this they are cooperating and helping each other. Living in nature has a positive impact on the health of children, as well. In the first part of the thesis, we analyzed the children's play, its role in learning, the types and factors that influence it. We will learn about the impact of the environment and toys in more detail. We went into analysis of structured and unstructured material, as well as playing in the playroom and in the forest. We will compare what kind of options a child's environment and material can offer. Theoretical findings were confirmed by a descriptive case study. With children, we tried to achieve three specific goals in the playroom and in the forest, while using observation and photographing to answer research questions. Through research, we wish to encourage parents and teachers to spend as much time as possible with children in a natural environment.
