Once we started looking I couldn't believe my eyes with all of the different varieties right here in our own back yard. The kids were pretty excited running here, there and everywhere looking for fungi. I could here shouts, "I've found a different one over here!"
I wanted a record of our time spent looking more closely at the fungi but didn't want to turn this into a chore, so I put together a very simple notebooking page for the kids to illustrate the fungi of their choice.
Everyone agreed on water colours for this exercise. Lego Lover (11) chose a single stand alone specimen.
From the Fairy Princess, 8.
Little Surfer Dude, 4.
We also completed a second page with the all of the photographs taken during the backyard fungi hunt.
After Fungi we were on a bit of a roll and notebooked some of our backyard flowers and birds. I'm sharing these simple notebook pages over at my box storage.
