We’ve been spending as much time as we can outside despite the Houston heat. This means our adventures are limited to mornings or early evening times, but that won’t last long once the mosquitoes come out in full force.
Anyhow, Aidan has been requesting a backpack for some time now. I thought it would be perfect for him to use for a nature bag. We’ve only stocked it with a ‘magic glass’ (magnifying glass) thus far, but we have plans to add a small clipboard, nature cards, moleskin notebook and coloring pencils, and maybe a bag for any found treasures. Aidan also likes to put his gardening gloves inside.
I have to say that I was very impressed with our order from imagine childhood. They have such a neat store and a wonderful blog. We bought both the backpack and the magnifying glass from there. Ollie got a set, too, but he’s not as interested in it just yet.
I’m also attaching a little nature scavenger hunt that I made for the boys. Keep in mind that it was made for the under 3 set, so the items are very simple. Just click on the thumbnail for the full version. Enjoy!
