2 Year Old Nature Journal: Getting Started!
We use these three things to make our nature journal; three-ring binder, three-hole punch, and white card-stock paper. As we observe nature we often find something of interest. Later I generate a page of our experience with a simple sentence and correlating clip art that we can color, paint, or create. I have found that using white card-stock paper seems to be best for durability. After the page is complete I display it on our table top easel then later we add it to our nature journal binder.
The binder is a wonderful way to keep track of our work and a way to go back and look through what we have accomplished. We currently are completing one nature journal page per week! My plan is each year begin a new nature journal and permanently bind the previous one. Therefore my children will have a two year old journal, three year old journal, etc.
