Summer Learning Fun {Family Connections Summer 2012} — 6 Comments

  1. Loved this post, Jamie. The photos are breathtaking. I especially love magnifying glass pictures with kids. Great way to hone those important scientific skills without letting them know they’re “doing science.”

  2. How fun!! We aren’t to the stage of wanting to touch bugs yet…but I think Sophie’s going to get there really soon! The journals are a great idea – I think I’ll be using that idea soon 🙂

    • We’d never seen one before and now that someone shared it with us, we’ve found several! Funny how you HAVE to slow down to see, but when you do it’s like the whole world opens up!

  3. The Luna Moth is BEAUTIFUL!! Love the paper pockets idea–I’m going to have to do that too! Never thought to have my daughter measure the wing span–thank you for sharing all of these ideas. Looks like a GREAT day of discovery.

    • They were really tickled to compare their measurement to the measurements in the field guide. Ours was about a quarter inch bigger than the field guide suggested and they were so excited to tell their Daddy that they found a “giant one!” 🙂
