It’s Christmas Eve and the kids have spent some of the morning playing with the Nativity Discovery Box. We’ve had it around for the run up to Christmas and the kids are getting familiar with the Christmas story. We’ve added peppermint scented oats, hay, chopped tinsel and glass beads, just to keep it interesting. Our characters are peg people wrapped in wool. We’ve added mirror card and printed pictures of the nativity around the edges and star decorations. There is a lot of learning going on In this box! Fine motor skills, recall, literacy and William decides to count all the glass beads he finds. Well worth the sweeping up.
Merry Christmas everyone!
