Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar – Day 16: "Forest Treasures"

In this Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar story, "Forest Treasures," Sylvia has a hard time finding acorn caps that she needs for Momma’s gift. Then brother and sister are invited on an Advent Nature Scavenger hunt where they find all sorts of treasures – including acorn caps!

Nature Scavenger hunts are so fun. Here are a few tips for a late autumn-early winter scavendger hunt.

  • Research some of the common plants in your area. Make a list of the 10 most common.

  • Create a written or picture list to have your children carry along with them as they take a walk to find them.

  • As you find the items draw them or collect them or take a photograph.
