Create a Botanist's Journal

Encourage your child to head outside and sketch all of the plants that are growing near your home. When he's done, help him research the plants online to find their names and learn more information about them. Make sure he labels each drawing, as well. If he's interested in photography, have him also take pictures of the plants.
