For some of us, spring is almost here. This also means that it is about to be the perfect time to get your children back outdoors after the long winter months.

My kids LOVE being outside and they really enjoy nature study. Studying nature comes so naturally to children. I love that it shows that there is a Mighty Creator and everything brings praise back to Him! I know some people that are afraid of nature study. If that is you, don’t be! Nature study doesn’t have to be a big, in depth study. You don’t have to be the outdoorsy type to do nature study. It can really be just as simple as taking a short nature walk outside.

If you are new to nature study, I suggest you start with going for a nature walk. You will be amazed at what your kids pick up on, and you will be blessed by the surroundings that God has given us. I wanted to give you a jump start on your spring nature studies by sharing with you a round-up of over 50 FREE Nature Walk Printables! You can print these out and leave some of them in your car, for an impromptu walk in a park, or you can make a folder for them in your house to pull out when you want to take a walk.
