I've liked the idea of a nature journal for a while, esp. for my dd, who has a real love for nature and a gift for observation. But she's only 4, doesn't write yet (obviously), and only recently started being interested in drawing "real" things, so I hadn't introduced the idea yet. Well, we rented a Bob the Builder video in which a young girl goes out "nature watching" and keeps a nature journal, which gave *her* the idea. (No, I didn't plan it -- I had no idea that was in the video!)

So this evening I gave her a small notebook and a pen and sent her outside with the kiddie camp chair. She not only drew some amazingly interesting pictures (grass with the roots below soil level, for example), but she was totally proud of the fact that she wrote her name on each page. I'm just over the moon! Thanks for indulging a little mommy brag!

That's awesome! My kids love to do watercolors in their nature journals too, for a little variety! What a bright little girl you must have!
