Last week I wrote about how more and more families are trying to live a little greener and it is important that kids learn the value of this from a young age. From not wasting water to throwing rubbish in the bin and from playing with recycled boxes and paper to separating the waste, there are lots of ways to teach kids about being green. Australian company Leaf. Paper for Life has thought of a great way to encourage kids to go outside and explore all that nature has to offer.

What child wouldn’t love to keep A Scrapbook just like Dirtgirl’s? Go on an adventure in your own backyard, the local park or maybe even on a holiday in the Australian outback. There is so much cool stuff to be found, you just have to start looking and you’ll be surprised at all there is to discover. You can enjoy your adventures over and over again if you record your findings in this cool Dirtgirl Scrapbook by Leaf Journals.

As you’d expect from a real nature lover like Dirtgirl this fabulous scrapbook is printed on 100% recycled paper, right here in Australia. With 64 blank pages to write on, decorate, colour in, stick on or paint on there is plenty of scrapbooking fun to be had. There are some fantastic scraps and craft papers included to get tou started but of course you can find heaps of good scrapbooking materials outside too and they cost you nothing, have you ever noticed how every leaf is different?

Maybe you want to use your scrapbook to study your garden or keep a diary of your next camping holiday, maybe it can be a notebook for your very own adventure club, you can use it for all kinds of things and you’ll find more great ideas in the scrapbook. A Scrapbook Just Like Dirtgirl’s ($39.95) is a great fun and educational gift idea that kids will love looking at again and again. Go outside and get grubby!

  1. I would give it to my daughter so she can document our move from one state to another, new house, new school, meeting new friends, the whole experience, then she can look back on it when she is older.

  6. oh i love this! i could use it for all my kids outdoor adventures. we are really keen on taking photos. my boys always ask for copies of photos i have taken of them doing fun things and it would be great for them to have a really cool album to put the photos in along with all the pretty leaves and feathers and butterfly wings that they collect along the way 🙂

  14. My son and I would use it to document the progress of his soon-to-be veggie patch: he’s interested in so many things eg materials used, plants chosen – successes/failures, the insects which visit (good & bad). He loves drawings & taking photos & collecting seeds & leaves, so these would doubtless all end up in his garden scrapbook!

  15. For me to draw in! I was always told to keep it up or one day you’ll lose your gift, and yes the gift is slowly beginning to fade and I need inspiration to keep it going…in a trove to look back on one day when it’s completely lost.

  16. As a mood book, drawings, ditties, thoughts, proverbs and poems to reflect my feelings for that day (and by no means do I mean anything all all ‘Dear Diary’ related!). And the way I’m blowing hot and cold at the moment, it will make for interesting reading down the track!

  17. My daughter has started growing herbs so we’d use it to document her plants’ growth and to record recipes in there that we made using her herbs.

  18. My daughter would use it to record her vegetable patch. At the moment she is growing corn, cucumbers and chillies for Daddy.

  20. It would be used as a family journal, with photos and scribbles of our time together, whether we are snuggling up eating popcorn watching a movie or outdoors at one of our favourite places to visit. We’d all write in it about the day and it would become our family album to look at in the future.

  21. My daughter would love this! She is a huge dirtgirl an and loves to dig around in our garden. I’m sure she would use it to create special pictures from things in the garden 🙂

  38. We’d use it to document the Felix’s life – (our new kitten)! We could take photos and weigh him and watch all the changes as he grows including vet visits! It would also teach my family responsible pet ownership!

  67. I would use the scrapbook as a life book of what happens in my son’s everyday life to try and organise his routines a little better and help him to know what happens next in his life as it can be a little confusing at times for him. From therapy sessions, to special ed school, to gymnastics, to playdates with his friends and to new adventures with mummy and daddy in the garden, down the park or with his younger sister and brother. Adding photos and quotes and pictures.

  84. I would love to fill this out with my daughter, I think it would be fun and a beautiful keepsake.

  85. my daughter almost two and a half loves to pick large autumn leaves and flowers. We have been drying them out on wax paper in the middle of the yellow pages telephone book. When completely dry, the dirtgirl world scrapbook would be a great final destination to store them in along with our adventures of where she collected them from.

  86. At the moment, I’m right into teaching my Little Miss 3 about the beautiful things that mother nature has provided us with. It all started with a fairy garden. We would use the dirtgirl scrap book to record everything we learn, everything we find, everything we grow, and everything we achieve on our wonderful journey to become little green thumbs :o)

  100. My daughter would LOVE to win the dirt girl scrapbook – she has just turned 6 and she is naturally the most nature minded child – something I really want to foster in her! This would be an incredible tool to get her out and really focusing on her environment, it would be a fabulous way for her to document and process what she does instinctively.
    Fingers crossed for Miss Piper! I am hoping by making this comment she is entered in this competition? Please email me if there is more I need to do.

  101. I have liked Leaf. Paper for Life – on FB. x
