Luke 1:56 ESV
And Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and returned to her home.
Today, take your child for a texture 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.
