Tara is an absolute genius when it comes to nature based crafts and learning activities with her kiddos. She keeps things simple, but ensures that as much time as possible is spent outdoors and being creative. We love so many of her ideas, but can't wait to try her sticky letter nature search in the coming weeks with our kids.

Jessica has some magical ideas when it comes to incorporating nature into homeschool learning. We love the way she takes basic nature concepts and delves deep into hands on learning activities, not shying away from sharing technical details with her kids.
