Christmas Nature

Coming up to Christmas I have been thinking of all the animals associated with this festive season. Robins, with their red breasts, feature on many of our Christmas cards. Here in Ireland, we often say that robins are Santa Claus’s little messengers, keeping an eye out for good and bad behaviour from the children at this time of year!

Then of course there are the all important reindeer. Where would Santa Claus be without his faithful sleigh pullers?

Often when we see the birth of Jesus depicted, the stable where he is born, is always full of animals; sheep, donkey and cows in particular.

Here are some Christmas activities to keep you busy.


Robin Craft

Search Google or Pinterst for Reindeer crafts and you will see endless possibilities. But I like this simple Reindeer chocolate bar craft. Great for gift idea.

Or how about a reindeer coloring page.

For a simple donkey craft, great for younger kids, checked out this D is for Donkey activity.

And of course don’t forget the Christmas tree. Here is a link to a simple Christmas tree craft using a paper plate and colourful pompoms though you could use buttons, stickers or other items too.
