Calling all Tree Lovers - Tree education and crafts for everyone!

If you're anything like me, you love trees! Trees are truly fascinating and there are ENDLESS things you can learn about and from them. I originally shared these links for Arbor Day, but with my Google Doc purge, I thought I should share them again so we can continue the tree love once the doc is gone. While some of the links say Arbor Day, celebrating trees can be done any time of year. Check them out and let me know if there are other goodies that we should add! Use the hashtag #LearningFunWithLaura when you post the fun you've had!

**An extra tip… consider making snacks with "things from trees" or incorporating things from trees into meals. Maple syrup, apples, etc. A bonus? You practice kitchen skills. 🙌 Enjoy!
