A Kid's Nature Journal!
This simple and easy to use kid's nature journal was designed with children ages 6-12 in mind (but of course can be used by any age!)
The creator's own children were always somewhat overwhelmed by the big open space of a completely blank page when they first began their adventures in nature study. So she (Alice Cantrell) teamed up with her 9 year old daughter, and together they came up with a non-intimidating journal that was fun and easy for her to just take out and use any time, with little help from mom. It is really a nature workbook of sorts, and has been designed to encourage frequency of use, and therefore develop the lifelong habit of nature observation.
This 8”x10” nature journal has 102 pages total with 45 pages for recording important information on the wide-ruled lines (such as the date, location, lunar phase etc.) and sketches. The following pages have been included in the front of this nature journal:
• A place to record the owner’s name.
• A list of nature observation tips.
• A few handy supplies.
• How to use this journal.
• Phases of the moon.
• A few animal tracks.
• Plants to avoid.
The pages of this journal are printed on a very nice 55 lb paper, but markers and paint will bleed through. Good old pencils and color pencils are going to work beautifully for your child’s nature journal entries.
