10 Journaling Prompts For Children In Nature

Journaling is a great way for children to reflect on their experiences in nature and develop a deeper connection with the natural world. Here are 10 journaling prompts for children being in nature:

  1. Write about your favorite nature spot. Why do you like it? What do you see, hear, and smell when you are there?

  2. Imagine you are a bird soaring through the sky. What do you see? Where do you go?

  3. Write about a time when you felt most connected to nature. What were you doing? How did you feel?

  4. Describe the changing seasons in nature. How does nature look, smell, and feel different in each season?

  5. Write about a tree you have seen. What does it look like? How does it change throughout the year?

  6. Describe a wild animal you have seen. What does it look like? What does it eat? Where does it live?

  7. Imagine you are a plant growing in the forest. What do you feel and see around you? What challenges do you face?

  8. Write about a time when you felt scared in nature. What happened? How did you overcome your fear?

  9. Describe a natural sound that you love. What does it sound like? When do you hear it?

  10. Write about a time when you helped take care of nature. What did you do? How did it make you feel?

Encourage your child to take their time with each prompt and really reflect on their experiences in nature. You may also want to offer some additional guidance, such as asking them to draw a picture to go along with their writing. The important thing is to help your child connect with and appreciate the natural world around them.
