Advent Activities (12th December)

Yesterday completely got away from me! I had an assessment in the morning (Which did not go to plan), Christmas choir rehearsal in the afternoon, and then the in-laws over for dinner before heading out to take some really giggly pregnancy photos!

In amongst all of that – I completely forgot to post my advent activity for the day!! So here it is (better late than never right?)

Go for a wintery walk

As anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows, I love a good walk! And this time of year is fabulous for going out and noticing all of the changes that are happening in the environment. Remember to wrap up warm, and pop on those welly boots!

Here’s a few ideas for walking:

    Look for any frozen over puddles OR splash in the non-frozen puddles

  2. Go on a scavenger hunt. Before you head out, make up a little list of things to find. These can be items that you could collect (pine cones, sticks, a shiny stone…), or just sights to spot (5 Christmas trees, a picture of Santa, a Christmas wreath…).
  3. Go for a torch walk in the dark! I wouldn’t recommend this with a large group of children – because you’ll need to keep an extra close eye on them. High-vis vests are also a good idea in the dark.
  4. Make footprints in the snow! That is – if you’re lucky enough to have some. I am so jealous of everyone who has been sharing pictures of the white fluffy stuff.

 

Remember, walking is great exercise, and it’s really important for children to get fresh air, even if the weather is not ‘nice’.

Have a great day!
