What hope you had a nice Earth Day yesterday! One of the most important charges we feel as parents is to instill a sense of wonder, curiosity, and respect for nature. Children are so observant innately, so this concept is not hard to teach, if anything it’s a great reminder for ourselves! To help them point out the beautiful, interesting, and even at times “yucky!” things in their surroundings, we sent them off with Twig Creative’s darling wood cameras. Virtually indestructible, they felt pretty cool getting to tote around their own camera. We just followed a few steps behind so we could capture what caught their eye.
This gorgeous zebra wood camera is an instant heirloom.
Seeing things that should not be in nature helped spark an easy conversation about littering, and keeping the Earth clean.
Thanks to Twig for helping us inspire the inner photographer in our little ones, and for Little Duck Organics for feeding them after a strenuous tenth of a mile nature walk. They loved the dried fruit packs, and at 3 grams of sugar, we loved them too!
