This Using Nature Journal Prompts course is a great jumping off point to embark on your nature journaling journey at home, school, indoors, and out!
Crafted to meet the needs of both beginning and advanced journalers, this course and these fully illustrated cards are sure to spark wonder and connection through observation, writing, and drawing.
It can be challenging to prompt and facilitate meaningful creative outdoor experiences for yourself or others. Sometimes we just need a little helping hand to get observing and opening up to all the life around us. That's where the Nature Journal Prompt Cards and this guide course come in!
Using prompts is a great way to get the creative flow going. The are a very useful tool when someone is embarking on a nature journal practice or for those days when it seems ideas and inspiration elude us.
Drawing a journal prompt card, narrows our focus. It gives us a direction in which to begin and a jump start to spark wonder, creativity, inspiration, and nature connection.
With this course I offer you the complete set of Wings, Worms, and Wonder Nature Journal Prompt cards in a digital download format, plus guidance for fun ideas and ways to use them at either home, school, or both!
Each card has a thoughtful question and illustration to spark observation and imagination based on the nature right outside the door or window. This course and card set will get adults, children, teachers, and families connecting with the biodiversity abounding outside - rain, shine, wind, or snow!
These cards align with the nature journal activities in my book Wings, Worms, and Wonder: A Guide for Creatively Integrating the Arts and Gardening Into Children's Lives, but they are also great to use independently and by no means require the book for use.
