The homeschooling community that's out there in social media land (Instagram especially) is so amazing. You can easily connect with others with similar interests. We recently participated in a nature exchange swap, through Nature Pal Exchange.

In the words of Charlotte Mason, “Nature knowledge is the most important for young children. It would be well if we all persons in authority, parents and all who act for parents, could make up our minds that there is no sort of knowledge to be got in these early years so valuable to children as that which they get for themselves of the world they live in. Let them once get in touch with nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life. We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.” (seen in Home Education vol.1, p.61)

During this fall season's exchange, we were matched up with a sweet family from Virginia... We had so much find collecting bits of "Oklahoma" to send off to them. We wanted to have tons of fun with it, so we did lots of creating for our swap package. The fun part, is that Nature Pal Exchange JUST opened up a Christmas Craft Nature Pal Exchange sign up. You better believe we signed up for it.
