Nature-Themed Advent Calendar 12th December

Today’s Reading

Luke 1:56 ESV

And Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and returned to her home.

Today’s Activity

Today, take your child for a textures walk; explain that you are going to hunt for different textures of all kinds in the natural world. Some examples would be:

  • Tree bark ~ rough
  • Pine needles ~ prickly
  • Stone ~ rough or smooth
  • fallen leaves ~ dry or slimy

Have younger children describe the textures they find, which are rough? Smooth? Slimy?

With each suitable texture you find, take a rubbing with the flat side of a dark-coloured crayon onto white paper. Keep these rubbings safe; we shall be using them tomorrow.

See you tomorrow for more advent fun.
