My girls love anything to do with nature! That was one of the reasons I was so drawn to the Charlotte Mason style of eduction because it incorporates nature study. We are always going on nature walks and they each keep a nature journal. We also have a portable nature table that is full of their treasures they found while we were out. The one thing I have always wanted to do with them, which we haven’t done yet, is to create art projects using nature as our art medium!

Painting with Nature from Danya Banya – this looks like a lot of fun.
