Nature Journaling together is a great way to learn all about the importance of spending time outdoors while observing the life that exists all around us. As we experience the natural world, we are reminded of the need to protect it and inspired to think of the ways we can help. This kind of journaling is also a wonderful way to work on your child’s art skills, observation skills, and writing. Furthermore, time in nature is good for mental health. There are just so many reasons to start nature journaling with your family.
