I recently came across two interesting nature study projects using recycled cardboard milk cartons that I would like to share with you all.
The first project is an Underwater Viewer from MarthaStewart.com. You can use this to look into a puddle or creek. Have you ever wondered what lives in a puddle? I would be interested to hear what you find.
The second project is a Root Viewer Box. By cutting the side of the milk carton and gluing on a transparency you are able to observe the roots of the seeds you plant as they grow.
Feel free to share the results of any projects you and your children might do using these links.
I am putting together a post about gardening and nature study for tomorrow, so be sure to check back for that. And I will have another Hearts and Trees Art Show for Monday.
