From the first moment I learned about Charlotte Mason, I have wanted to incorporate nature walks in my homeschool. But I would get in a rut and never could think of anything new to do.
Imagine my thrill to find Cindy West’s book 100+ Easy and Fun Creative Nature Walks!
What I love about this ebook is that each of the 100 creative nature walk ideas are simple and fun. They are perfect for preschool or elementary age. You can do a different type of nature walk every time you go outside!
Some examples are to look for particular colors, to count things, to dig, or to look only below the knees. I was so inspired that my 2 girls and I headed out.
Our Nature Walk:
Here are some pictures from one of the nature walks I did with my preschooler and 7-year-old daughters at the pond near our house.
My older daughter loved this weeping willow tree and said she’d love to have one at her house when she grows up.
We saw dragonflies and hear bull frogs. They saw how the water was overflowed onto the grass and tried to find tadpoles.
Here is a snail they found.
