Nature I Spy Printable - Winter Edition

It has been an unusual winter in our area. We usually get snow. We expect snow in the winter. This year though, has mostly been rain with a couple spring-like days teasing us. It's been a dreary, muddy winter. It is this time of the year that we start to feel cooped-up in the house.We need to get out.

When I start feeling this way I find that going for a nature walk helps change our mood. It might be a quick walk around the block or sometimes a trip to our local gardens or state park (I will admit that I only take longer walks on warmer winter days. I'm a wimp---lol!)

I created a winter edition set of I Spy cards (see related Fall I Spy Cards) for our next nature walk. Now I realize that winter looks different in the Midwest than  in other areas. I tried to make most of the cards usable for any area. Just print and laminate (optional), place on a ring and carry along on your nature walk. See how many of the items you can find.

Please share the link to this blog post and not the direct link to the printable. Thank you!

 I've joined several other bloggers today who are sharing free nature printables too. Stop by their blogs and see how they are enjoying nature this winter.

Love these Maureen! (especially that I can clip them on the stroller, I've never been good at carrying around clipboards and pencils)

Can't wait for Spring,

;) Valerie

I love this. Your right the midwest has had an odd winter. It is suppose to be in the 40's today and I am debating if we are going to the zoo or not.

We've done a spring and fall "scavenger hunt" walk before, but never winter. I have no idea why... I love you're cards. We'll have to try them this week. Thanks!
