Being a teacher, I have quite the stash of Christmas books. After purchasing a few more, I wrapped 24 and the kids got to open one each night for their bed time story! I look forward to adding new books to our collection and continuing this tradition.
Our Advent activity book suggests beginning with a countdown chain. Tink made her first chain last year and had a lot of fun using it to see how many days were left until Christmas. We created one last summer to count down the days until our move, and she somehow merged the words "chain" and "pattern". It's now known in our house as a "chattern"...
It was such a hit that the kids wanted to sit there for
The Very First Noel, and created a gingerbread navivity!
Here's to wonderful Christmas memories, and many more to come!
