This is a series I will be doing to feature ways you can celebrate our Earth with young children.
We started simple with a nature walk in our own backyard. I am lucky we have a fairly "naturey" (I know that's not a real word but humor me please!) yard but you can easily do this activity at a local park, gardens, forest preserve etc. Before the walk we talked about all the parts of our earth that we can find in our backyard.
We walked around the yard exploring and my 3 year old collected the nature items she discovered.
I explained we were going to make her very own nature book using the items she collected.
These little books are great for so many projects. I purchased them in a bundle at Discount School Supply
Using popsicle sticks she glued on each item to a page and then we labeled it. (A great way to include text with meaning.)
And Voila! We have our nature book!
