Each month here at Green Acorns you can find simple prompts to encourage you and your child to notice nearby nature. They could be done while on a hike, right in your backyard, or even amidst the busyness of everyday life.
Taking the time to notice will build a connection with nature and help develop a sense of place. It strengthens skills of observation and reflection. It promotes empathy. It can enhance abstract and critical thinking. It can lead to stewardship of the natural world. The list of benefits goes on an on… And this all can be accomplished in little time with only a little effort.
I hope you enjoy this month’s prompts. Click on the image below to download them. Print them off and pin them up where you can see them. Take a quick peek the next time you are on your way out the door.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms! Have a wonder-filled weekend.
