Blue Mushrooms

Some of you may remember posts from The Cabin Path.  For many years, I had children's art/nature workshops. Sadly, I no longer have those workshops.  There is still that "fear factor" in nature, and since it involved my backyard (52 acres), there were liability insurance rates and risks.  I miss them and the all of adventures we had exploring, looking, learning, and creating!

Over the weekend, I discovered "Blue" mushrooms!  They are easily indentified, edible, and  a fun way to…

Sarah, you are so right about the importance of "seeing" nature. The color hunt idea is a great one using the paint squares at Home Depot or Lowe's.....or any paint store. So many kids don't see nature, especially the older ones who are so focused on texting with their friends on their cell phones as they walk around. They don't see what is around them, literally and figuratively. Thanks for sharing this. John

Thanks Sarah. From the pictures, it looks like the children are looking for shapes in nature that correspond to letters, rather than finding an object (turtle for T) whose name starts with one of the letters of the alphabet. I suppose you could do one or the other. Fun activity. John

Great Photoshow, Sarah. How do you do your Alphabet hunt? Do the kids have to find something in nature whose name begins with Apple and B for berry, etc.?

Good to see you back, Sarah. We've missed you. Keep us posted on the great programs you offer kids at The Cabin Path. More and more is happening in the great state of Georgia. John

Beautiful snow video. That Ken Burns music always tears at my heart.

Nature is so healing! In mid September, my only sister was diagnoised with ovarian cancer. I cancelled all workshops at The Cabin Path (my home) and cared for her. She passed away Nov 14. Then, 2 weeks later, I lost my favorite aunt..also to cancer. I also care for our 93 yr old, blind Mother.
It has been a trying time...I'm trying to cope! Back home now, I have spent many hours walking the trails, the labyrinth..and seeing what others see when they visit. I received many cards and notes from families, and I realize how much others (all ages!) need nature to heal. I almost decided to discontinue my work, but I truly believe that The Cabin Path is a place to heal and grow. After the New Year, I plan to start back..and expand...and see where this path will lead!
