I gave the kids a simple assignment one day on our last week of school before Spring Break or so. I was busy and had to get something else around the house done, so I let them use their own creative mind to come up with HOW they would accomplish the task. I didn’t give them any guidelines at all. “Create a nature journal cover on a sheet of paper.” I told them. They were excited to work on the project and quiet for over an hour or two!
Here’s what they made (and what is now on the front cover of their spiral bound nature journals):
Kids are so creative! I love their nature journals. We’re going to write in them again today about yesterday’s field trip with our co-op. We saw the coolest lizard that I want them to draw. I got a photo of him (and another 149 photos to go with it).
Get out your art tools and be creative today! Doesn’t matter what age you are. It is good for the soul!
