Exploring Science and Nature through Christmas

Welcome to Day 5 of my series, Life Learning Through Christmas,  as part of iHN’s  5 Days of Christmas hop. Today is all about exploring science and nature.

Living in the south makes both winter and summer somewhat uncomfortable for nature study, but spring and fall are pathetically short. So this year I’m making an effort to get out even when it’s a little cold.

Here are some ideas I’ve collected to help you continue your science and nature study through the holidays and into the new year.

Holiday Science Activities

Winter Science Books

We love picture books and science and nature picture books are among our favorites.It’s so easy to find ones specifically for the colder months that the kids will enjoy.

Science Stocking Stuffers

You could also add some science stocking stuffers to your Christmas list or if you’re like me, just have these on hand for quick, impromptu science exploration.

Have a Merry Christmas!

I hope you’ve enjoyed these five days of life learning through Christmas. The holidays are the perfect time to embark on some rabbit trails and see how doing begets learning.

Putting this all together has given me some ideas for this December and I can’t wait to get started.
