Over the last 20 weeks, we’ve been able to share amazing facts, fun crafts, informative videos, and more to help bring wonder to your home. Please enjoy some of our readers’ favorite Curious By Nature episodes and more in this special month-long best-of holiday series. We’ll be kicking off a new season of Curious By Nature in January to help keep you connected to nature and science all year long.
We’re revisiting some of our favorite episodes of Curious By Nature, including this one featuring Katherine Lampert showing us how to make beautiful leaf lanterns! Give these lanterns a wintry twist with pine needles, dried flowers, and more! Be sure to share your creations with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Did you know that Katherine Lampert is a local Chicago artist? In fact, one of her exhibits, Pattern in Nature, is on display at the Nature Museum. Although you can’t visit it in person right now, you can explore it virtually through this video.
We recently showed you how to create your own scratchboards. But did you know that there are also some beautiful scratchboards at the Museum? John Agnew uses this unique medium to create beautiful illustrations of crocodilians from all over the world. You can explore Crocodilian Scratchboards virtually by clicking here.
