“Let’s Explore” Nature Journals

Exploring in nature is one my favorites things to do! I find myself doing it more and more–as I take a walk, drive down the road, ride my bike, etc. My son enjoys exploring God’s creation as well. This inspired me to begin creating my “Let’s Explore” nature journals. These journals are designed for children ages 8-12 to write and draw what they see around them in nature all the while learning about what they observe in nature.

Each nature journal is this series has a different region or habitat theme.

I’m very excited to be adding these nature journals to myΒ store (link here).

I created these journals to be used at home or in the classroom as an added activity to heighten the interest of children in nature. These are great to use on field trips as well!

  • “Let’s Explore! Wetland Nature Journal”

      Thank you, Kim! They were a big hit at a recent Farmer’s Market as well. I set up a table next to my mamma and had such a great response! I am looking forward to making more in the series soon!
