This visual field guide is meant to help spark the imagination and fuel the creative spirit in both children and adults alike. Here you will find a sweet little collection of children’s nature art and explorations documented through the eye’s of a Parent who happens to also have the heart of an Artist. It is so important to foster in our children a sense of awe and respect for the natural world around them as it will ultimately help them connect then with themselves. Nurturing a relationship with the natural world does not have to involve instructions, plans, or expensive kits and supplies. Many of the creative endeavors documented throughout these pages started with natural materials that you can collect from your own back yard or surrounding forests, beaches, and fields. This book is meant to present the simple beauty found when the natural world is paired down, deconstructed, or picked apart. Scattered throughout you will also find references to books, artists, and other fragments of thought that helped lead to the experiences found on each page. Each activity, craft, or exploration is open to change. There are no set rules in establishing creative connections through nature. Some pages simply offer a meditative view or a breath of fresh air in this busy world. Let each image tell it’s own story to you and then use your imagination as your guide to create your own journey through nature.
