3. Study some great art.
You can use my Trees in Art- Online Art Show to get you started! This online art shows has 14 different pieces of art from a variety of artists using many different styles. Questions to get you started are included in the post!
I was inspired by my mom's post about nature study and digital cameras. What child doesn't love it when you let him use a digital camera? Using my free printable, your child will look for different things to photograph while on your nature walk. How many can he find?
When you are done, print your child's favorite photo of that day and mount it in the frame provided on the printable. There is also a space for your child to describe his favorite photograph.
Be sure to check out my other free printables here. And be sure to check out all the other PDFs and art, handicraft and nature study kits I have for sale on my blog here.
As a special October 1-15, if you purchase ANY KIT I have for sale on my blog, I will send you Hearts and Trees Volume 1 All About Colors FREE!! (Volume 1 will be sent as a PDF file to the email associated with the PayPal payment, within 3 business days of receiving your payment.)
I have had a few questions about the difference between the Hearts and Trees Kits I offer for sale through my blog and The Hearts and Trees Digital Magazines that I also have for sale.
Hearts and Trees Kits
Basically, a Hearts and Trees Kit is a packet of instructions and materials to help you add art, handicraft and nature study into your homeschool. When you purchase a kit, it is physically mailed to you. Each kit is full of a variety notebooking pages, an art print, art projects, instructions for handicraft projects and all the materials you need to complete the projects (except for some common art supplies I assume you will already have on hand.)
I usually have at least one kit for sale at a time. (But right now I currently have three with another once coming out soon!) Each kit has a different theme and set of projects and notebooking pages.
A Hearts and Trees Digital Magazine is a PDF "e-zine" that is emailed to you after you purchase it. Each of the volumes of my Digital Magazine are also packed full of art, nature study and handicraft projects to include in your homeschool. The main difference is that YOU provide all the supplies.
