I love to take the kiddos (10,12,14,16,17) out to any water mass and watch the birds we have such an abundance of them in our area 🙂
Not sure if I found the correct link :-/
My kids are 6,5,and 4. In the winter we have plenty of mild weather even though sometimes it gets pretty cold so we still go to the park and on nature walks as much as possible.
My kids are five and two, and a kindergarten is coming up! Our favorite winter nature activity is definitely to play in the snow. We really don’t get that much of it!
They’re 5 and 1, and snowshoeing for sure. 🙂

Our favourite winter nature activity is bird watching – we live in northern Ontario and we get pretty intense winter weather, so I really appreciate the hardy little winter birds that tough out the cold season up here. We have a yard that attracts a lot of birds, and for me bird watching is also nice because we can do it from inside the house looking out the window! 🙂
We have four blessings: 15, 13, 11, and 9 years old. Living in Florida, not much “winter” but we like camping, walking, biking, etc, and just being outside in general.
My kids are 7 and 3. We love to put out homemade or storebought bird feeders In our backyard and watch the different kinds of birds that come to eat. It’s fun to observe the birds eating patterns and note who visits us the most. We often name the birds who come back daily and draw them.

I have 10 children ages 5-18. We live on a 90 acre farm and have a fire pit close to our house and our favorite winter activity is building a big bonfire and cooking hotdogs or s’mores. We sit out all bundled up and hang hammocks and watch red- cheeked kiddos run around. Play based learning sounds wonderful for my younger children who are adopted.

My kids are 2, 5, 6, and 12. My favorite winter activity as a family is curling up with hot cocoa and a board game or good book! (I am not an outdoor person!) However, my kids like making snowmen.

My daughter is 6. Our favorite winter nature-based activity is building in snow – forts, castles, sculptures, all kinds of building.
My girls 11 & 8 love playing in the snow whenever it snow, here in NYC. Typically our outside activity includes going to the playground. They love the swings all year round. They run and play with their friends or make new ones.
My daughter is eight years old and has been home schooled all of her youth. We used ABCMouse.com during her earlier years but we need more than that now. We have an acre of land and part of that land is wooded so we’ve taken yaupon branches and created a earlier version of a teepee. We enjoy the cooler days but they’re far and few in between here in our part of Texas. We try to do different things outside like gardening or tossing pine cones into a pile and gather leaves while we’re out on our walks. This winter has been different since it gets up to the low 80s and only two freeze days so far. We used to have more cold days in the past. I’m watching my daughter grow up every day and I’m not missing it all. Thanks for offering this curriculum to those that are looking for a different way to home school.
My kids are 4, almost 2 and soon to be in June. Going on Nature walks and identifying animal tracks are favorites of our kids. Along with sledding, snow angels and construction work in the snow.
We live in rural Idaho and we’ve been hit hard with snow this year! Our favorite winter activity has been staying in and reading aloud all our nature books getting ready for spring! My 4 year old is waiting to try out a butterfly net and a critter cage.
I have five kiddos. The two who haven’t left the nest are 12 and 15. We loved snowshoeing when we lived in northern BC. Now that we live in the southern US, we enjoy being able to bike in the winter~
My 2 boys are 4 and 6 months old. We live in Kuwait, so winter is the only chance we can enjoy the outdoor. Our favorite winter activity is park hopping.
My twins are 6 years old. We love to build snowmen and look for animal tracks in the snow. We also love to feed and watch the birds.
I have three sons, ages 10, 5, and 1. We live in Texas, so we love just playing outside and taking walks in the winter because summer gets too hot to do anything outside.
This is a curriculum I have been researching a lot and haven’t quite made up my mind, it would be neat to try it out for sure! My kids are 9 1/2, 7, 5, and 2 1/2!! Our favorite winter nature activity is bird watching!! We love figuring out what birds visit us during the winter and how that’s different from the other seasons! We want to try to make some homemade bird feeders too!

My son is 4/almost 5 (4 & 11/12ths, as he likes to tell people). Where we live winter is the rainy season, so we do LOTS of puddle jumping, and love to watch the big snails crawl out and leave shiny trails… and occasionally save them from their questionable choices, lol.

My boys are 7 and 10. I am becoming very discouraged with public school curriculum and am seriously considering homeschooling them.

My kids are 9, 8, 5, 3, 1 and 3 months. We live in the SE US so winters are extremely mild. On days like today where it is 75 degrees, we love going on long nature walks either on trails or the beach.

Fav winter nature study: we have a pond next to our house. We have charted it thru the seasons and winter is so interesting. The kids are always surprised by what survives all winter. They are testing the water for ph and looking at it under the microscope. They have to break the ice. It is turning from pond to swamp, and we have learned so much about wetlands …. even during snow and ice. Adaptation, botany, and just drawing lessons for art there ….
Our littles are 5, 4, and 2. We love roasting marshmallows in our wood burning stove. Cuddling together to read on the couch. Eating warm bowls brimming with comforting soup. Playing in the pale cold sunshine.

My boys are 5 and 2. Our favorite winter nature-based activity (when we lived in Ohio) was going on a scavenger hunt in the winter through the fresh fallen snow.

Gwen @ ButtercupsBabies.com
My children are 9, ALMOST 7, and 4. We live in a part of the country were we have fairly mild winters, so going out puddle-stomping and trying to spot nests while the trees are a bit naked are about as winter specific as nature-study can get for us. 🙂

We have 6, 4, and almost 2 here, and have actually just started lookinginto Oak Meadow. Thanks for the giveaway and sharing the discount!

My boys are 3 and 5. Our favorite winter activity is to eat snow. Literally! We patiently wait for snow days and when enough snow falls we eat it. We also love catching snowflakes with our mouths.

My kids are 8, 5, 3, and 21 weeks along with number 4! My kids love playing in the snow during the winter, but we live in the south so we rarely get any. They always enjoying playing outside though; with their dogs, on the trampoline, exploring in the woods, going for walks in our neighborhood, going to the park…anything outside. They also love learning about how snow & ice are made, and what animals do during winter.
My children are 5, 8, 10 and we love skating and sledding, though this year our snowfall as been a paltry amount. We also enjoy watching the birds and squirrels at the feeder. They only seem to come in the colder months.
My darlings are 1, 4, 7, 9 and 10. This winter we are living in a pretty cold place and get lots of snow for about 5 months of the year. However, this winter we’ve been the most active outside. So… been out, bundled up, breathing fresh air- even if it’s freezing fresh air, I must say is out favourite thing this winter 🙂

My daughter is 10, 11 tomorrow!
Favorite winter activity is making pine cone bird feeders, looking at snowflakes up close when the sun shines on them, making snow paths…
My children are 1.5 and 4.5. When it snows, we like to bring our shovels and buckets to the park. We’re in the middle of a big city but sometimes we see a red-tailed hawk in the trees. Sometimes we participate in our local free forest school which encourages letting the kids lead nature exploration. They wander around and check out logs, bar, pine cones, etc. It can be pretty cold though!
My kids are 11, 9, 7, and 5 and we are planning to homeschool next year for the very first time! In the winter our favorite activity is hiking in our yard.

Hi – thanks for this opportunity! I’m looking into homeschooling my three kids, ages 4, 6 and 8 and Oak Meadow curriculum sounds amazing! We moved from Tucson, AZ to New Hampshire last year so our winter activities here in NH are all so new with all this snow! We’ve jumped right in with learning to ice skate and snow shoe.

I have tweeted, posted it on Facebook, and pinned it on Pinterest. Hoping that our family wins this giveaway. I have always wanted to try it with my children, but limited with our tight budget. This would truly be a blessing to our family.

I have four children, my oldest is almost 9, my second is 7, my third is 5 and my youngest is 4. We live in the snow belt in Upsytate NY, and our favorite thing is to be in nature and learn, no matter what the weather! It’s part of living here! 🙂 We are frequent visitors at our closest Nature center called Beaver Lake where we love to track animals in winter and find the medicinal plants in the other seasons. We created a wormatorium our last school year for our compost, with only 15 worms and ended up with over a couple hundred, while the compost was still in the house! Our garden is our favorite place because we like to let nature grow up and forage it for any medicinal plants. We love to hike as a family and have traveled to almost every state park within three hours of home to visit waterfalls and see nature in it’s amazing beauty that the Lord has blessed us with! We enjoy creation as much as possible! 🙂

My kids are (almost) 4 and 1.5. We live in the south so we don’t get much of a winter 🙁 but we still love to be outside and take walks and play all year long!
I just shared on facebook!!
Shared on FB. ❤????
I have 4 boys and this sounds perfect!
my daughter is 9 and our fav think for our snowless winter is to go hiking and check out where birds nests are, when the tree leaves fall and map out the areas to see if the birds return to the same nests in the spring
My child is five years old and I’d love to share the wonders and joys of winter I enjoyed growing up. Alas, we live in a milder climate. This year the weather hasn’t even been cold enough to bundle up so we’ve continued our usual outdoors adventures of hiking, critter searching and general gallivanting.
My three are 2, 4, and 6. If it actually gets cold during winter here in the South, we might play for a little while in the snow. It’s been really mild this year, so we’ve been outside a lot. Tons of swinging from low hanging tree branches, digging in the dirt, and looking at wildlife here. <3

My kids are 4 years, 7 years and 10 years. We love bird watching, playing in the snow (when and if it actually does snow), and staying active at the library to avoid the really cold days.
I’ve got a five and three year old here and we live in Canada so we’ve got real live winter. I love to go walking on the river near our house, it is less windblown and you never know what kind of animals you’ll run across.

My older son will bring home leaves from his trips to the park just for me. I have a dead leaf collection because his sweet heart thinks of me and wants to bring me “surprises”.
The kids are 9 and 7 and our favorite winter activity is to be at the inside water park and watch the snow falling outside. We do love sledding, building forts but there is something magical about swimming and watching the snow at the same time:)
Our children are 2, 6, 8, 20 & 22 ! The 2 older ones are grown & married ;0)
The littles & I love hiking on our land & doing our own version of Forest School! Sometimes families from our homeschool group join us & we build forts or have cookouts….my favorite is listening to the amazing silence after a big snow & watching the shadows of the trees on the snow.

Our children are 9 and 14. We are currently researching curriculum to use to pull ours out of public school. Our favorite winter activity is sledding and building snowmen, although we have not had that opportunity this year!!!
My children are 7, 7, 5, and 2. We like to make snow angels, climb trees, and then make hot chocolate.
My kids are 3 & 6. Our favorite winter activity is nature journaling while hiking and playing at the park. We live in SC, so it hasn’t exactly felt like winter. I shared the give away on FB. Good luck to everyone!
I have an 11 and a 9 year old. We always enjoy noticing the “changing of the guard” as some bird species leave for the winter and others arrive. New songs soundtrack the browner landscape and pecking orders at the bird feeder are re-negotiated.
I look at Oak Meadow every year but haven’t taken the leap because we have many homeschool materials that we have collected over twenty years of homeschooling and I can’t really afford to try something new. My children still at home are 17, 15, 13, 10, 9, 6, and 4. I would definitely want eighth grade for my artistic 13 year old.
Winter is for reading and walks.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi! Our kids are 8, 6, 3, 1.5, and one still cooking ????. Living in TX, our winter is our favourite time to be outside! We love to go exploring out in the pastures, and observe the cows almost every day.
My kids are 5, 2 and 4 months. In the winter we like going outside for scavenger hunts, looking for animal tracks, playing in the snow and building “houses” with little bits of nature.
My kiddos are 14, 11, 9, 4, and 2. We live in Northern CA and love to explore the coast and the redwood forests together. We’ve actually spent a great deal of time this year exploring weather lore and discussing barometers (we’ve had quite a crazy, wet season!).
My kids are 5 & 8. Our favorite thing to do is to play in the snow in the winter and then come inside and make hot cocoa!
Six and eight are their ages. Our favorite winter nature activity is being outside and playing with bikes, scooters, etc. No snow here!
Oops I meant eight and ten!
Our kids are 7,4 &3. Favorite outside activity is snow,anyting in the snow if we are fortunate to see flakes ever;). But since that’s rare, we like finding bugs and leaves to investigate.

My girls are 9, 6, and 15 months. Winter in Oklahoma can look like many things. From 3 feet of snow to the 75* temperatures we had today, it never ceases to keep us on our toes. We LOVE bird watching in the winter as we set up feeders just outside our windows to keep our feathered friends happy and well fed, as well as keeping our bird watching enthusiasts happy.
I have a newly turned 6 year old and a 3 year old. My daughter is currently completing first grade curriculum and my son is working on pre-school work. We live in Texas so winter is the perfect time to go for scavenger walks and find certain colored objects, letters, numbers, etc.

My kids are 4.5 and 1.5. Our favorite nature-based winter activity is breaking icicles off plants and eating them! Something we can all enjoy equally. Bonus: great for teething.
My kids are 7, 6, 4, almost 3, and almost 1! We love to toboggan down our little hill on snowy days in winter.
I have three—7, 9 and 3. During winter my husband loves to take my kids skiing/snowboarding. My kids are big fans of the snow.
My children are 3.5yo and 6yo. We are summer all year round at where we are. Occasionally we have cooling weathers and loads of rain. The closest we get to imagine it is snowing is when the flowers and yellow leaves get blown off the trees. We like to cycle in a drizzle, step in puddles after a down pour and sometimes just head out for a nature walk in rain.
My children are 7,6,4,1, and new born. They really enjoy snow play when we have snow, but when the weather is nice they like to build “forts” in the woods while there are still no bugs out to bite them! 🙂 I have looked at OM for years and have just not had the budget, would love to get the chance to try it out!
My son is 10 and we live in Hawai`i. In the winter months the Humpback Whales are here . Our favorite activity is to find a spot at the end of our yard which is a 200ft cliff ,set up chairs and take notes on the pods we see and what kind of activity they are engaging in and if they are close enough take photos of different pods .
My kids are 9 and 12. We live in a relatively mild climate, so one of our favorite winter nature activities is taking nature walks and seeing how our surroundings are different during wet and dry seasons.

We love to harvest seaweed and monitor all the sea creatures and fish, we love to go clam digging and watch what sea creatures are in the mud, we love to monitor seals and sea otters all year round, we love to keep track of the migratory birds we see come into our community! We live for outdoors!
Our kids are 10 and 8. Their favorite winter activity is building snow quinzees, with lots of tunnels, in the mountains of Vancouver, Canada.
My kids are both 3.5. We love going on hikes and long walks. Since they are so little we mostly play with words and numbers, look for animals, try and find something from every color of the rainbow and work out brains by working out bodies. Love the sound of oak medow.
My kids are 4 and 2 (with another on the way in August). We have enjoyed spending time in the yard and experiencing all of the seasonal changes. This winter has brought us A LOT of snow, rain, and MUD to enjoy!
My kids are 13 & 16. Building snow forts & going for nature hikes are our favorite winter activities. Unfortunately, snow has been sparse this winter in MI. 🙁

Hi, My kids are 3 and 5, looking forward to starting more structured learning in the fall season. In winter we definitely enjoy the snow and the icicles, and sliding down the slopes with the sleds. now we are enjoying the sun outside and the possibility to take longer walks.
Done, shared and commented on FB.! 🙂
My heart is eleven. In the winter we love kicksledding with our two dog sled team when we aren’t building snow forts .

My kids are 12 , 10, 8, and 5. I like snowshoeing but don’t do it much. Mostly I just put my hand out of the van window to get the mail and that’s my outdoor time. Hahaha
My children arw 6 and 9. Our most favorite winter time nature based activity is to read tons of books of all the changes that animals and plants go thru in nature and then go outside to see and experience them. From all the animals that hibernate, to the changing of the trees and plants to the awareness of the weather. We enjoy experiencing and appreciating it all.
My kids are nine and eleven. We have been in a drought for years. This winter we are able to go for walks to view lakes and streams that have been completely dry for ages. My kids are having fun playing in puddles and are starting to make plans about catching tadpoles and praying it won’t dry up by summer.
My children are 11 and 13. In the winter we love skiing together !
My children are 10 and 13. We live in the south so our winter has been very mild. We love to go on nature walks around our farm!

My kids are 8, 7, 4, and 2. We live in the south, so hiking is one of our favorite winter activities – we even played barefoot in a creek this week!
My children ages 9 and 6, and I live near the beach so we love to take winter strolls and collect anything that may have been washed up by the ocean. Sometimes we can see whales or seals on our walks. We also like to play in the snow, this year we built an igloo.
2 children ages 8 and 12. We live on the North Shore of Lake Superior and love all that winter affords us. Probably our favorite nature activity of all is finding, tracking, and interpreting animal tracks. It’s always a surprise and delight to find fresh tracks, even those tracks of animals we see daily (such as deer). Learning to differentiate the tracks by male, female, where they are going, what they are doing, who they are following is a mystery book come to life! Our biggest surprises this winter were mink in our backyard and twice (once in Jan and once in Feb) bear tracks! It’s ordinarily much too early for the latter to be out and about!
My children are 3 and 1. We love to go sledding in our front yard.
My children are 15, 11, 9, 7 and 4. We live in Florida, so we love to set up hammocks in the yard, play outside (it’s finally not HOT all the time), go to the beach and check out tidepools and nature there.
My kids are 9, 6, and 3. We all love just hanging in our backyard. Building snow forts, sledding, making snowmen. Best of all right now, tapping our maple trees for maple syrup.
My girls are 10 and 11 and they refuse to go outside in winter unless there’s snow on the ground. I would love a nature-based curriculum to help find new ways to encourage them outside!

Anne’s latest post: A Week, Briefly (In Which We Have a Picnic)
Hi all! Our little pixie is five (just a couple months shy of turning six), and she’s become a bird lover this winter! All things birds. We like to hike, make homemade birdseed ornaments to hang from our trees, count birds, chart the types and when we see them, and sometimes lie in front of the windows to watch and sketch birds. I have hundreds of sketches that our daughter has spent endless hours sketching, coloring and providing a funny backstory for. This season has been good to us!
My kids are 5 and 2. Our favorite winter activity is hiking (especially in the snow) and looking for animal tracks.
My son is 9 and our favorite nature based play is either a trip to the beach with dip net or seine net or a hike in the woods. When hiking we never cover much ground but we see so much that if not for him we would have looked past!
My children are 5 and 13. We love to snow mobile and hike through the woods in michigan. We even have campfires in the snow and occasionally kayak/canoe in the winter.
My kids are 6.5 and 3.5, and our favorites winter-based activities are probably nature walks followed by hot chocolate and cuddles.
I have a three year old and one on the way 🙂 We live in SW Pennsylvania where the hills are perfect for sled riding. We have snowball fights, sled ride, make snow angels and we love to stay inside out of the cold and read, too. I’m interested in this curriculum for the early years!
My kids are 8, 5 and 2 and we live in Orlando, FL, so our favorite winter activity is visiting the theme parks while it is the off season for most people. We rarely get cold weather, so our winters are the time to be outside and enjoy the sunshine before it gets super hot! I marvel at how grateful I am everyday to live where we do.
My kids are 2,4,6 and our favorite winter activity is going outside no matter the weather and looking for animal tracks and identifying the animals!
Kids are 12, 8, and 6. Their favorite winter activity would probably be taking a nature hike around one of the lakes, looking for tracks and signs of animals.
Our children are 6 and 7. In the winter time we love to stomp through the leaf piles, when gift it snows we love to build little snowmen and slide down the hill behind our house, but one of our all time favorite things to do is curl up in front of our fireplace with hotchocolate and read books (right now we are reading the Faraway Tree series by Enid Blyton)
My kids are 5 & 2 and one in the making 🙂
Our favorite winter activities are bon fires and camping. We live in Florida and it is the best time of year for it here!

I’m new to homeschool and have heard about this curriculum. I’d really love to win! I have a 6 & 2 yr old. So I’d need the k-3rd grade.

My son is 7. We love to go sledding on the rare occasion we have snow here in NC!
My kids are 12, 10, 8, 5, and almost 2. Winter here in Oregon is generally mild to allow for hiking and nature walks. This winter, however, we’ve received plenty of snow and ice, so it’s been fun exploring something that is new and rare to us! Thank you for the offer….we love Oak Meadow!
My kids are 10, 8, and 5. Their favorite outdoor winter activity is probably building forts and sledding.
My children are 6, 10, 14, and 22. We love to snuggle and read in the winter, celebrate many birthdays, have friends over for our yearly Winter Solstice Celebration, NOT leave the house as much lol, eat warm soups, etc…:)
This sounds amazing! I struggle with how to employ the outdoors in our studies although we play outside often! My kids are 8, 8, & 7. Our favorite outdoor activity is exploring a small drainage area from our pond – like a little river with cool rocks, fish and birds.
I have three boys who are 13, 11, and 5. Playing in the snow is their absolutely favorite winter activity, but since we haven’t had much of it the past couple years, winter hikes have been our choice.
Our little guy is 6. Our favorite activity is to escape to Florida for the winter and enjoy the beach!
My sons are 9 and 6. We have snow…lots of snow…in the winter. We also have a lot of cold days here in the Canadian Prairies. One of our favourite winter activities, to do as a family, is cross country ski. It gets us outside when it is so cold we might not otherwise do so. We never know what we will see on the trails — from deer, rabbits and winter birds during the day to foxes, owls and starry skies at night.
Shared this awesome giveaway on Facebook! Thanks!

My daughter is 9. We love to spend time outdoors, unfortunately we haven’t had much wintry weather this year, it’s been so warm!! Snow is our favorite, but we almost never get any!
I have four kids that I homeschool ages 2,6,8,12!We live in the Southwest and our favorite winter activities are bike riding and playing at the park
I have four daughters, 11, 9, 6, and almost 3. We haven’t done a lot beyond just simply playing outside in the wintertime. Neither my husband or I have been big into winter sport activities. This year we’ve been sick a lot so we haven’t been able to be outside as much as we have wanted.

Thank you!
My kids are….23,23,21,18,14,12,8,6,and 3. To be honest…one of our favorite winter nature based activity is to shovel snow.

Well my son is slowly discovering his admiration of the great outdoors, which is big because he doesn’t like bugs of any sort. He’s 8 and has always been afraid of them. Right now we are having our last day of a Spring tease in Illinois and he’s been enjoying being outside. ????

My children are 7 and 4 and we enjoy doin Amy and everything outside. Most days they can be found out back on their swing set fort, rain or shine.
My children are 7 & 11. We love to hit the beach during the winter months. We always check how cold the water feels on our toes, look for shells, play in the sand while looking for critters, and enjoy the off-season from the crowds.
My kids are 7, 4, 2 and 7 months….we are a homeschooling expat family (yay for being open to international families!)….Our favorite winter activity is either hiking in the woods or strawberry picking in a local greenhouse (winter is strawberry season in Korea!).

Our children are 24, 20 & 7 and praying for another soon. We have decided to homeschool our 7 year old with Autism so he enjoys school and doesn’t feel like he is always in trouble. He is the sweetest little man and loves to collect rocks and winter doesn’t stop him. We find ourselves digging in the snow for rocks and whatever else he may find under the cold layers. We are praying for more snow next year to keep us even busier.
Our sons are ages seven and nine. I’d love to use this curriculum with my youngest child.
Our favorite activity in the winter to do together outdoors: I’m fairly certain both of my boys would say snowball fights and sledding! I would say snowshoeing and skiing!
My children are ages 12, 9, 6, and 2. During winter months we enjoy creative play outdoors, providing food for birds so we can observe the birds, and reading.
my children are 7 and 4 during winter we like to knit winter hats, scarves and headbands, it doesn’t get that much cold this side of the world though.
