Nature bags

I read my first Charlotte Mason about 7 years ago. For a girl that loves being outdoors, Mason's writings about education through "nature study" spoke right to my heart. It's all about observing and holding and sensing- things my boys seem to do without question.

And now they each have a bag just for such an occasion! I used inexpensive muslin for the straps and main body of the bag. Then I added a single layer of colorful print for the front pockets which are perfect for holding rocks, a few black walnuts, and an assortment of sticks and grass.

"Let them once get touch with nature, and a habit is formed which will be a
source of delight through his life." -Mason

Great resources for your nature walks:
