Happy December! It doesn’t seem possible that this month is upon us already. This month also marks two years that I’ve been putting out Wild Kids Magazine, which doesn’t seem possible. I’ve always said that I would take it year by year in deciding whether to do another year, and I’ve decided to commit to another one, even though my family always thinks I’m nuts because I am so frantic at the end of every month putting it together! 😉 It seems like the world needs all the nature and fun it can get right now.
Our first year’s botanical coloring pages were for wild foods to forage, and this year’s were for herbs. I’m torn between doing garden plants or flowers for 2021’s pages. As you know, I use Elizabeth Blackwell’s wonderful historical prints that she created hundreds of years ago, so I am limited to the plants she found useful (luckily there were hundreds!). Let me know if you and your kiddos have a preference for flowers or garden plants!
Here is this month’s issue of Wild Kids Magazine:
This issue is a little longer than usual because I made some “wreck this magazine” pages for kids to use nature to have fun with muddy fingerprints, pounded leaves and so on. We also have information about mistletoe and thistles, tips on enjoying all the seasons, all the usual nature journal pages, seasonal poetry and lots more.
As always, the magazine is ad-free and 100% free to read online, download or print out. Feel free to share the link with anyone who might benefit.
I’m not adding any links to this post in order to get the magazine out to you as soon as possible. If you have questions or would like any links for more info on any of the topics, just leave a comment and I’ll be happy to share my favorite resources.
Stay well and have a wonderful month!
