The Great Outdoors, Time For Nature

This week we have gotten close to nature. In fact we have taken three nature walks with the girls and gathered many leaves, branches, nuts, vines and more. The highlight of this week was making nature wreaths with the things we gathered. The girls loved it and they also loved making plaster casts of animal tracks. We have slowly begun making a nature exhibit in our home with all the things we collect on our walks. Our latest find was a skull from a white tailed deer. It's amazing the things children learn just from observing things like this.

A few of the books we used.




Identify that leaf!
