Create an outdoor art kit that you can grab while on the go. Fill your kit with supplies like paper, crayons, markers, tape, and ziplock baggies for collecting and storing. It is also helpful to bring a blank journal to illustrate and describe what you see.
Night Time Stargazing
On a clear dry night, layout under the stars. Without the city’s lights, the stars shine bright and put on a show. Make sure you take a star chart with you to identify as many constellations as possible.
Creating nature rubbings is a great way to make a written/picture record of your findings. You will need the following items from your outdoor kit.
Creating the rubbing is super simple. Put your leaf or flower between two pages and color on one side of the paper covering the leaf. The outline and veins will show creating a copy of the leaf.
