I was just getting ready to post this, when I saw that The Crafty Crow has featured our fun kite tutorial! Welcome to all new friends...hope you have fun poking around maya*made!
It's that time of year again...little foragers (and even big ones) come home with bulging pockets filled with nature's treasures. What do you do with all of those beautiful shells, feathers and more? We display our favorites and then move them back outside, or give them a permanent home in our "museum". Labels help us remember, as well as identify what they are.
I find having nature guides, either in book form...
...or as wall charts, adds so much to our learning about the natural world. They also help me answer the many "whys?" and "hows?" my children ask.
Here are four of the children's nature books I use most:
-Trees, Leaves and Bark
-Tracks, Scats and Signs
-Nature Smart A Family Guide to Nature
-The Kid's Nature Book: 365 Indoor/Outdoor Activities and Experiences
In addition, Margie, from one of my favorite places: Resurrection Fern, added some of her recommendations in the comment section...go check them out!
