Admiring Allahs Creation: DIY Nature Journal

Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,

We are loving the Winter season over here, especially since it’s usually hot and dry all year round.  So rather than spending more time indoors, we’ve been taking advantage of the cool breeze and getting outdoors more often.

And although we go for nature walks often, I wanted to incorporate nature studies as a definite component of our homeschool week.  Especially since pausing, admiring and pondering over Allahs creation can be a beautiful way for us to discuss Allahs greatness.

There are some wonderful nature journals online, but I wanted our journals to encourage us to praise Allah and aid in increasing our love for Him.  I also wanted our journals to be interactive, not confined to a number of pages.

And here is how our nature journal turned out.

Water
Food colouring
Spoons and plates
Plastic table covering (optional)
Thankfully, You DONT need tonnes of Elmer’s glue or contact lens solution!
