We love to collect bits of nature. We collect everything from sea shells to snail shells and all things in between. With our finds we create art, play games, manipulate math concepts, examine them under the microscope and share with our friends... We do love to share what we find out there in the natural world and see what others are finding as well. I am sure many of you feel the same way.
Another thing we love around here is to see the mail truck coming up the driveway with a package just for us. The squeals of delight and calling out of it's arrival are unmistakable.
What a wonderful thing to combine two of our favorite things... nature and mail. What fun!
Would you like to join in the fun? Would you like to share nature with another nature loving family and receive a box of their nature finds in return?
If you would like to do a Nature Exchange please do the following:

Start getting your nature box ready as soon as you sign up. For ideas on how to pack up your nature goodness please check out this post.
By November 5th I will match you up with another family and send you an e-mail with the information needed to send your nature box to your match. I will do my best to make matches from different regions but it all depends on who signs up. Once I divide all participants into regions matches will be made by random selection. Please be understanding.
