Nature Observation Printables

I love taking nature walks. I could walk and sit and observe all day. My kids, on the other hand, need a little more guidance on our walks through the wilderness. Just walking and looking can sometimes get boring for children. They sometimes just need to know what they are looking for. That’s why I try and come up with a theme for each walk. Sometimes it’s looking for tracks in a creek bed or searching for wildflowers or birds nests. I just want the kids to notice and appreciate various parts of nature.

Another way to guide children on a nature walk in by using printables or journals. By observing and then sketching or writing what they observed, the children are becoming scientists and developing an appreciation for the natural world around them.


The Nature Walk Observation Notebook is a 6 page (including the cover) nature printable that I created for you and your children. Each page is dedicated to one part of nature for your children to observe and record. Hopefully, it will spark a love of nature within them. Enjoy!
