My kids aren’t that enthusiastic about nature unless it involves mud puddles.
I wrote about last season’s less-than-epic nature walk and the importance of cultivating a sense of wonder, and nothing really changed since that post. We’ve been on quite a few nature walks since, of course, but the kids are not happy about walking, much less inspecting nature.
What to do when your kid hates nature walks? Nature journals, of course!
I created a few (of course!) to get exactly what my kids need. The free sample short version is a stand-alone 4 page version in black and white, while the one you see pictured in this post is the expanded version in color (these links will take you to my Teachers pay Teachers store.)
