The other day I mentioned on Instagram that I was packing up the kids & we were heading out for a nature walk. We really needed a break away from the grind & I needed to gather some things from nature for some upcoming projects I wanted to complete. One of them was this Nature Tic-Tac-Toe we made. We packed up some easy, on the go snacks & headed on out. It was a glorious day which was so nice because we have had quite a few rainy days lately. That’s normal for up here & I’m not complaining at all. I actually LOVE the rain & usually welcome those days as often as they will come. But on this day I just wanted a beautiful day out with the family & it was the perfect day for that.
We stopped at the lake to soak it all in. I never get tired of where we live. It’s AMAZING!
We picked up our rocks for this projects & collected some twigs & pine cones for some others I have on my list too.
We made sure to stop & check out some of our other places like the damn while we were out.
When we got home we worked on our project. I had the girls start by painting their pictures on their rocks. One did flowers for the O’s & the other did trees for the X’s. Then I painted the board with come chalk paint & then use paint markers to make my letters & game board pattern.
I love that this project gave us the opportunity to spend some time outdoors soaking up this amazing place we live. It’s so easy to get caught up in the schedule & forget that there are 17 beautiful lakes within a short distance of our house. It’s important to get out & experience it while the kids are young enough to add these memories to their list of favorites through the years.
