This FREE Churchyard Nature Activity Pack is ideal for encouraging children & families to explore your Churchyard & discover for themselves all the amazing biodiversity it offers. The activities within the pack can be printed & left in your church for visitors to explore, used with schools, or added to any environmental events you may be hosting. They're ideal to share throughout the year, & suitable for all ages.
Churchyards are fabulous places to discover a whole variety of wildlife. There is always something new to find! This pack is designed for children to take a closer look at your outdoor space & all the natural treasures it offers.
In the Nature Activity Pack you'll find:
:: Prayer Walk Sheet - offering children the chance to actively pray for wildlife as they walk around the churchyard
:: Tree Detective Sheet - inviting children to find out more about trees in or around your churchyard
:: Nature Frame - for children to draw their nature finds. If you wish, you could collect some of the artwork & create your own art gallery in the church to celebrate your wild churchyard.
:: Multisensory Scavenger Hunt - to encourage children to explore the churchyard using their senses.
:: Invitation to Pause, Rest & Listen - a printable sheet with 6 emotion cards encouraging children to explore how the natural space within the churchyard makes them feel. One of the ways to use this is to add the invitation sheet & cards to a quiet space in your churchyard, either on a bench or on some picnic blankets where families can pause, rest & listen to the sounds around them.
