Alphabet book of nature’s treasures

Grab a box and send your kids out to collect nature’s treasures. Now, for more fun. Make your own nature alphabet books. In my Imagination Soup kid’s writing classes, I order my books from Bare Books. You can do this or make your own book by folding 14 pages and bind with staples or yarn. Help your child by writing down each letter big enough for them to trace over. Add other words like ant, bird, grass and tree. Then, help your child say the word and figure out the beginning letter sound. Draw, glue or tape to that letter’s page in the book. Now, your young writer has written a book — one that can be added to for many days to come. P.S. Your older kids will love this, too!
