Sample of some of the items

Kids LOVE these!!!  Toss out the video games, turn off the TV, and go to the dollar store and make a Nature Kit!  I just took some old fabric and a shoelace and made the bags myself.

Here is what I put in my kids Nature Kits:

    • small plastic bottles
    • tweezers
    • small notebook
    • gardening gloves
    • magnifying glass
    • tape measure
    • pencil
    • pencil sharpener
    • colored pencils
    • small sand shovel
    • sifter
    • tape
    • hat
