I’m so excited to draw your attention to this Small Adventures Journal by Keiko Brodeur, chock full of prime ideas for exploring!
Take a peek inside it on her website here! (And prepare to want everything else you see as well!)
Keiko has thought of dozens of clever ways to increase keen observation, engagement of all our senses, and joy in the nature surrounding us, from photographing nature’s textures to making spore prints or recording and naming the colors of the sky. All illustrated in her extraordinarily fetching style!
It’s suitable for ages 6 and up I’d say, and not at all too young for teens (or adults for that matter who’d like encouragement to slow down and savor.)
Keiko has graciously supplied me with a copy that I’d love to give away to one of you!
