On Good Friday, weather permitting, I will be meeting our homeschool Nature Club at a nearby state park to take an Easter-themed nature walk. I have instructed all the participants to bring a clip board or hard writing surface and a few colored pencils. (This post contains affiliate links.)
I will begin by gathering everyone in the grass to read the first few pages of The First Easter by Carol Heyer.
I'll hand everyone a copy of the Good Friday Nature Walk notebooking page, and we will begin to walk on the designated trails. We will look for a large leaf, complete the first box on the page, and read the next few pages of the book. This read-walk-draw cycle will continue until we've completed the entire notebook page. (Any Resurrection-themed picture book will work just fine for this notebooking activity.)
It is my prayer that God will use this time together in His creation to point our hearts toward the cross and the gift of new life given by His risen Son!
