{Day 1} 31 Days of Nature Study for Young Naturalists


During the month of October, I am participating in The Nester's 31 Days writing challenge. Have you heard of this fun project yet? If you are not familiar, you pick a topic of your own choosing and write on it each day in October.

I don't know about you, but it is a humongous challenge for me to write for 31 consecutive days. This is my very first year to work on this project. I am nervous and excited at the same time! Overall, I am hopeful to see the end result one month from now.

I mulled a few ideas over in my mind, and I decided to pick a topic that we love in our home. I selected 31 Days of Nature Study for Young Naturalists as our children and students (in our cottage school) adore everything related to nature study and science. Plus, autumn is our absolute favorite time of year. This writing topic will help us fully immerse ourselves in the delights of the season.

I plan to write on outdoor explorations, ideas, activities, crafts, Pinterest finds, book reviews, favorite resources, freebies, and field trip ideas. I may include a giveaway or two during the series.

I hope you will join us in this journey of nature study!
