this week’s activity in Exploring Nature With Children was the autumn tree study. We headed off to our local park, and were somewhat waylaid by pigeons, geese, and ducks..

Autumn Pond Study

Autumn Pond Study

Hello all

Sorry for the delayed post this week – I have been under the weather.

Our nature walk for this week from Exploring Nature With Children was the Autumn Pond Study. We went on Monday; a beautiful, glorious Autumn day! Unfortunately I forgot both my camera and ‘phone!

I do have photos of our nature journals, however, which we did ‘en plein air’.

I did a very ‘sketchy’ sketch, breaking the rule I give my children; ‘Draw what you see, not what you think you see, or want to see!” But I have to confess that after several years of painstakingly sketching exactly what is in front of me, I do enjoy this more ‘laissez-faire’ style.
