    As a mom, I find it important to empower my daughter to be. To be creative. To be a decision maker. To be an engineer of her own world. To be her true self. To just be. Watching her flourish in nature is a great reminder that I need to gently guide when asked, but let her take the reins.

    Yesterday during her Audubon Homeschool Class, she and her pals explored building structures for survival. I assisted by collecting and placing branches to their plan. In 45 min, she and her friend did a fine job of weaving in smaller twigs into the branches to help block the brisk wind. Leafs tucked and piled on the lean-to/teepee style shelter. They declared it cozy and comfortable. They were proud. That made for a successful day outdoors.

    Do you have nature-related family rites of passage? What do they look like?
    ..
    Jane Yolen's Owl Moon highlights one father's Winter night excursion into the forest with his daughter when she's been deemed old enough to appreciate the search for a Great Horned Owl. It's charmingly illustrated and encourages readers to appreciate the beauty of the silence found in nature, and appreciation for finding what you're seeking.

    I’m really interested in nature inspired arts and crafts these days, particularly ones that do not consume or create waste. Mandalas have a long history of therapeutic use, and mandalas made from our garden pathway definitely are a ‘leave no trace’ creation everyone can feel good about. The new loose parts that arrived in our wood mulch inspired some mandala making this week 🥰 I have a full blog post on how to make seed mandalas with kids if you want to give mandala making a try! ☝️ I’ve linked the post in my bio- or search seed mandala on the home page.

    Ms. Yukie and Ms. Jamie’s threes class had so much fun creating collaborative art with music.
    First, drew with pencil, then with sharpie, then with a paintbrush. They added texture using balloons and glitter to make it sparkle.
