Nature Walk Clipboards
While school supply shopping at Walmart the other day, I ran across some clipboard storage boxes in several fun colors. I remembered Maureen from Spell Out Loud mentioning using these nature walk clipboards with her family, so I put three in my cart. Wow – they have been a wonderful addition to our nature walks!
I’m in love.

Nature Walk Clipboards Make Me Happy
We can pack all kinds of fun supplies inside and clip our papers to the outside. Having a built-in hard surface to write or draw on is perfect. They aren’t too bulky and can even be wiped clean! My entire family loves this new addition to our nature walks!

I have heard of people using the storage clipboards and forgot all about them. Thanks for reminding me. We love clipboards! I need to go grab some with the school supplies!
I do this as well, except that I put all of the colored pencils in a plastic bag–not a ziplock (although that would probably work), but a thick plastic bag that kids underwear or tees come in that has a snap at the top. Keeps pencils from falling all over when the clipboard is opened 🙂
Love that idea. My wheels were already turning about adding a zippered pencil bag or something. Thanks for the suggestion!
What a fantastic idea that will keep us always organized and ready for a nature walk!
