Fun Friday~ {Nature Prints}

Today we read from our BF Geography Study: Tree and the Trail and moved onto Nature Study. 

Our children's book choice was The Night Gardener. 

We learned that the trees growing or should I say dying on our front stoop are topiaries. 

This was a sweet story of one man's gift to a community and how he inspires a little boy to follow in his footsteps~
We enjoyed looking through this Nature Journal book. It gave us ideas of drawing wildflowers out in our yard. 

I challenged the kids to scout out and find a flower/leaf to use for a fun activity. They came back to find big index cards and a hammer~
 We placed the nature treasures between the index cards then pounded the color out of plants to the paper. They turned out beautiful so we laminated and added to our nature journals. Nothing fancy but I'm sure they won't ever forget!!! 
A great Fun Friday!!!
