A Magical Childhood is an amazingly fun blog, maintained by a mother who recently shared that she was pregnant again – completely unexpectedly.  She homeschools her children and posts regularly with ideas on how to make each day with your children magical.  I really enjoy her posts, as she shares photos and stories from her life at home with the kids, and inspires me with activities I can do with Little Miss (some now, some when she gets a little older).

Recently she posted something incredible: Listening to Trees.  Did you know you can hear a tree’s “heartbeat”?!? Makes me want to go buy a stethoscope this afternoon!  If you do this, take pictures and share them in the comments below.  I’d love to see you and your kids listening to trees.

  1. Kind of makes me want to take a stethoscope when we go camping to compare the sounds from different types of trees. If I suggest it though, my daughter might think I’m trying to communicate with them – ever since she read a story I posted about talking to trees when I was a kid, she thinks I’m a little odd. But science is her favorite subject, so I’m sure she’d be into it.
