Most of us have friends and family that spread around the country, maybe even the globe. We have such an amazing time learning about what is right out our backdoor and delight in sharing it with others. It is also great fun to get a package full of nature's goodness from far away. This would be a great time to contact a relative or friend to arrange a nature exchange for the kids as gifts for the holiday this year.
The sea glass above and this bait bag from a lobster pot are great examples. It says somethings about our local area and might just inspire some research by our recipients.
Sometimes we also include pictures of the kids out in nature, some postcards of local wildlife (our Museum of Natural History has a great collection) or some supplies for a nature based craft.
Another fun and easy gift from nature.
Have you ever done a nature exchange? We would love to hear about it.
