We're having a Nativity Activity day on Saturday and I'm busy getting things ready! Here's something we're going to use to help the younger children to explore and play with the Nativity story: a discovery box full of items connected to the story and friendly for smaller hands.
It's very easy to put together. I got a big cardboard box, shredded some yellow paper and then put some Nativity themed items inside. Here's what's in the box...
- Wooden nativity character decorations
- felt stars
- wooden hearts
- a fabric heart
- a wooden cross
- a wooden dove
- a battery operated candle
- three small gift boxes
- some coconut shells (to make animal hoof noises!)
- a glittery discovery bottle to help children connect with the awe and wonder of Jesus' birth
Looking forward to playing!
