I just picked up some new books from amazon today, using my handy dandy Amazon discount bookmarks, to aid us in our homeschooling adventure. One I have been eyeing for quite some time is The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections this book looks like it has a great deal of information on playful parenting and enjoying nature. Another one that I purchased today is I Love Dirt!: 52 Activities to Help You and Your Kids Discover the Wonders of Nature the fact that it’s 52 activities, one for each week of the year is entirely appealing to me. I hope to do an activity a week on the day that I’m off with the girls. Now all we need is spring to come so we can spend some time outdoors.
