Slow Down and Enjoy the Beauty

How awesome it is to slow down, stop, and explore all of the wonders and beauty in this world! So often we are rushing from task to task and place to place, that we are missing all of the wonder around us. Isn't it great how children can slow us down and remind us of the simple things that bring joy? Below are some of the treasures we found on a recent nature walk.













We are looking forward to using the above photos for our Nature Journal that we will be creating. Not only will it guide in the children's reading and writing, but it will remind them of the beauty in this world. To read more about creating a nature journal, visit Creative and Curious Kids!

Blessings,
Jen

Love the idea of a nature journal, just waiting on my twinks to get old enough to do it! They are 2:) I did make an egg carton caterpillar tonight with them and they had soooo much fun painting!
