Once you and your child have decided to take on Nature Journaling as a project, it’s time to decide what that nature journal will look like. It’s really just a matter of preference. Many kids like to use a sketch pad because they’ll be drawing a lot of pictures and the heavy paper makes it easy to glue in bits of plants and other natural materials.

However, some kids prefer their nature journals to look a little more natural or “of the earth”, if you will. If this is the case for your child, then it’s easy enough to make one.
