On my to a workshop at a flower farm in Keswick Virginia, I spotted this albino fawn, while driving in my car. It was about 10 yards away, but luckily I had my trusty Nikon with its 12x zoom lens. The mystical baby creature seemed to be all alone. I have seen one other albino deer in my life. There used to be a white buck that lived in the woods by my house. I was always thrilled to spot it and consider it to be good luck. Below is a painting that I did in honor of albino deer. Ooh, that gives me an idea; make an albino deer LoopyDoll, yeah!
We will go on nature walks, where we listen, look, taste, and smell. Natural objects will be turned into art objects, gardens will be planted, and we will meet some animals of other species. I hope that this blog will serve as a resource for parents and educators in their search new creative activities to do with young children, activities and games that will hopefully foster a lifelong appreciation for the natural world.
