Exploring the world and falling in love with it

Way back last spring, I pinned this activity for the girls to do over the summer, but summer came and went and we never did it.  I really love how it encourages kids to explore their environment so that they begin falling in love with the natural world around them.

So I made it my goal to complete this fall — a much easier time to send the girls outside than the summer — and we finally did it over Thanksgiving break.

The instructions are:

1.  Do the activities on the cards.

2.  Take a picture of the card during the activity.

3.  Write a letter about your experience.

4.  Make a new card to add.

5.  Send the letter and cards to a friend so they can do it, too.

 

The girls had a great time playing in the backyard and walked over to the park by themselves to take pictures of ducks.  They even found a butterfly (or moth) in November!
