This week, preschool and kindergarten children ran around my backyard searching for nature’s treasures in order to make and write nature alphabet books. What a blast! You can help your child write his or her own ABC book of nature. Here’s how…
DIY Nature Alphabet Book
I order blank books from Bare Books but you can always make your own book using blank pages you fold and staple.
First. write the alphabet in order, one letter per page.
Next, collect natural objects you find in your backyard or the park. Use a box or bag to collect your items.
Then, see if you can identify your natural objects and write (or get help writing) these on the corresponding alphabet letter.
Later you can go back and look for things that you can’t collect like animals and bugs: ant or bird.
Draw pictures if you want. OR, glue the nature into your book like the f for flower below.
Now, your small writer has written an ABC nature book!
