Create a Kit

Now that you have an idea of what a nature journal is and what you might like to document, it’s time to start putting together a kit!

Here‘s one list of nature journal supplies from Raising Little Shoots.

Our suggested list is:

  • A sturdy sketchbook
  • Pencils
  • Coloured pencils
  • Portable watercolours
  • Fillable watercolour brushes
  • Pastels
  • Charcoal
  • Crayons
  • Tape
  • Handheld microscope
  • Local field guide

Once you’ve made a list that make sense for you, you can start gathering supplies and put everything together in a carry bag.

As you get ready to go out in the field, don’t forget water, sunscreen, and a small first aid kit!

Your Tasks for this Unit:

  • Make a list of supplies for your natural journaling kit
