ABC doodle flashcards

I’ve  been playing around with Photoshop (love it!) and I have created ABC flashcards for more phonetic practice. My girls helped me come up with some of the objects on the cards. :) I quickly doodled the image on paper, scanned it to my computer and used photoshop to color the doodle. So yes they are a little wonky, but we like them…. ;)

Nature Journal


Exploring and playing outside is very important to us – I love it and my girls love it. Once a week, we grab our bins and go for a nature walk. They run around searching for things they can add to our collection and they get so EXCITED when they discover something new.

When we get back we sort through our treasures, discuss what we’ve found, and add it to our journals.

They either paste their favorite finds or draw them.

We use a nature book called “Fun with Nature” to help us learn about our new treasures. If the book doesn’t help, we use the internet. :)
