Science and Nature Activities to Make Christmastime Fun

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 to keep the exploration going even in the busy Christmastime season.

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.

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.
