- Pack your nature bag with everything you need! You will need your journal, writing / drawing utensils, water, snacks and maybe a pair of binoculars or a magnifying glass. Is it wet or muddy outside today? You may need something to sit on!
- When you arrive at your destination, focus on what you would like to observe – is there an interesting habitat? Maybe there is a tree that has caught your eye?
- Using your senses – what can you see, touch, smell, and hear? How do you feel?
- You can write, draw or even stick things into your journal – express yourself however you would like!
My Nature Journal
At Hug-a-Bug World, we talk a lot about the benefits of keeping journals – both for children and their caregivers. Keeping a nature journal helps your Little Bug slow down when they’re outdoors and take in their surroundings.
