Altered Composition Books

These are the Nature Journals that I created for my children's Explorer/Discovery kits. We will use these as journals and to keep track of some of our experiments we do over the summer months. These are a fun way to get my children to continue using their writing and drawings skills over the summer holidays. I made these out of ordinary composition books and simply covered these with leftover scrapbooking papers.
What all will be in our kits??? I will be making personalized canvas totes to carry all of their supplies and snacks on our outdoor adventures. They will include their clipboards and journals, writing tools and glue, a ruler (so they can take measurements), a magnifying glass ( which will only be used under supervision - we don't want to start any fires!!!), binoculars, and assorted other bug catching accessories.
