Brand new downloads ~
Welcome to adventure outdoors journaling ideas! Nothing stiff, stuffy and serious here! Be warned ~ you and your Nature Journal may get dirty or wet, but you should have some real creative fun!
I have created 2 Smash This Nature Journals which you’ll find on my Packages Page.
Here’s how it works ~
- Take this journal with you every time you go on a nature walk.
- You can complete any activity, in any order.
- Be original! Use your own ideas or adapt any here to suit your situation.
- Photograph some of your destructive results and collect them in here to show off!
- Have fun!
My wonderful homeschooling friend Willemien Kruger of Homeschooling Curriculum Guide sent me photos of her boys enjoying their “Smash Nature Journals“!
Here’s her feedback,
“Both my boys enjoyed doing the Smash Nature Journals at times. It was scheduled for something to be done when they feel like it, so some days they did a lot of pages and some days none. Of course, the boys enjoyed the really smashing activities more than the coloring or writing, and some activities really helped them to think outside the box! A cool idea for younger kids to explore nature and art!”
My daughter also enjoyed “smashing” her journal! There is something wonderfully liberating being instructed to tear, crumple, stain, wet and mess in a nature journal. In the past, I over-stressed the nature sessions with expectations for neat, labeled, researched, colored journal pages. This new approach brought a flurry of activity and excitement to our nature walks.
Pop over to my Packages Page to order your downloads. And when your children have completed their pages, please email them to me to share here on the blog!
