Once a Month Nature Journal Project: Add Color to Your Nature Journal

Once a Month Nature Journal Project

Add Color to Your Nature Journal

-From the Archives

This school year, I’m going to be revisiting the Once a Month Nature Journal Project here on my blog. Each month I’ll share one of the suggestions from the series for you to use with your family.

I know what it’s like to get stuck when starting a new nature journal page. The blank slate is a little daunting to many of us, especially those new to the idea of nature journaling.

Challenge yourself to give each idea a try!

If you need more inspiration, I created a Pinterest board that gathers dozens of actual nature journal pages from participants.
