  1. We have been rather lax about nature study recently-plenty of outside time but not much else so this was a helpful prod in the right direction!

    What an amazing post! I love how intentional you are about providing nature experiences for your children. I’m definitely going to have to pick up some of these items for my son.

  3. Your post is so inspiring. I have been putting off doing nature study with my son because I had this idea that at 4 he is too young to do it ‘properly’ (we spend lots of time outdoors and looking at bugs, just not in an intentional way) but this post has shown me how wrong I am! My son would love catching bugs and using a magnifying glass to help him draw them! Why did I not realise this before?! I’m going to put together a nature study bag for him right away!

    Might be a good idea to take along a pencil and tracing paper. My son is mad about tree-spotting and would ask me to help him trace the bark of a tree that fascinates him.
