Have you ever completed a nature study in your homeschool? We did about a month ago and it was the most fun we’ve had so far!
As a mama who’s never really been an “outdoorsy” kind girl, the concept of Wild + Free homeschooling makes me nervous. I feel safe indoors, nothing will sting you there. Or bite you. Or make you sweat.
But ever since we went on a nature scavenger hunt with a couple of other homeschool families, I am obsessed. I feel like I’m 10 years old again, in my backyard after dark, making mud pies. Being outside just brings something out in you that you had no idea was there.
Nature makes you curious and full of joy.
If you haven’t done a nature study, like a REAL nature study… Where you actually go outside. Do it! You will not regret that time exploring creation, big and small, with your kids!
If you do not consider yourself outdoorsy, as I did, don’t be afraid to start small. Head to a park with a walking trail (or even your own backyard) and complete a nature scavenger hunt!
You will find some fun, strategy-based hunt ideas in this Printable Nature Journal!
This journal was specifically designed for kids with pre-writing skills, however, anyone can use the ideas in this journal to document their next wild + free adventure!
You can print it to create your own nature journal or pick and choose single pages to complete on certain days during your adventure!
