We’ve been practicing a bit before officially beginning adding to Emma’s new nature journal by gathering different things from our yard to study and paint. I found that asking her to find 4 leaves of different shapes or 3 different types of flowers really helped to spark her interest and gave her goals for what to look for – it was like a scavenger hunt!
Emma thought this was wonderful, and I joined in the fun, too. :)
I can’t wait to get started for real! :) I still need to buy The Handbook of Nature Study (I’m hoping to find it used) but we’re pretty much ready otherwise!
