Years ago when I first heard the idea of incorporating a nature walk into the homeschool day, I thought it was pure genius! What a lovely idea it is to stroll through the great outdoors (the neighborhood) and take the time to notice the little things. My daughter loves to use her cruising longboard while I walk. The hum of the insects, the color of the leaves, the shape of the rocks – sketching them into a small book was icing on the cake!

Here are 9 creative ways to enjoy the outdoors. They will help to change up your outdoor time so that the children don’t get bored. The free printables include bonus pages for your nature journal!
