We love to feature reader submissions in our Mirth and Merriment Section and in the Compendium.

We need your nature study photos! πŸ“·β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹
We have an upcoming quarterly with the theme Science of Nature, and we’d love to fill the magazine with real life photos of you all in the wild with your kidsβ€”for this specific issue and those to come!​​​​​​​​
Some from the beach.​​​​​​​​
Some from the mountains.​​​​​​​​
Those living the country life.​​​​​​​​
Those in the suburbs. ​​​​​​​​
Is it summer where you are?​​​​​​​​
Maybe you’re still in the throws of winter.​​​​​​​​
Wherever you are, however you nature study!​​​​​​​​
A few rules:
We don’t do photos of the inside of people’s homes in the magazine, and we don’t publish direct faces of children. You can send your high resolution photos to us through the submissions tab on our website, β€œnature photo” in the subject line. As always you will be credited for the photo in the front of the magazine!​​​​​​​​

We are always looking for varied photography for the magazine that depicts everyday homeschooling, documentation of mother’s further education, and nature study (in the wild or at the table)

The Mirth and Merriment submissions could include:

nature study notebook shares

your own personal backyard wreath!

poetry narrations

original poems



short stories

creative verse
