The ADVENTure of Christmas!

Okay, since its November and I’m freaking out because frankly, the last thing I remember was August 14th when we started school, everything after that’s been a blur! Ya, don’t remember a thing, except that I woke up this morning and realized that I haven’t even THOUGHT about Christmas cards! Okay, sorry about that minor freak out, I’m better now…sort of.

One thing I wanted to share that we do each December is take time off our regular curriculum and do the activities in this book:

Its so much fun, Lisa Whelchel has made 25 activities that bring our holiday back to its true meaning: Jesus! You can do 1 activity a day as a countdown, or just pick ones that look fun! I highly recommend this book!

Just so you know what you’re getting, here are some topics covered in the book:

  • Advent Wreath
  • The Christmas Tree
  • Lights on the Tree
  • Ornaments on teh Tree
  • The candy cane
  • The Star
  • Christmas Greetings
  • Outdoor lights
  • The colors of Christmas
  • Angels
  • Candles
  • Christmas Cards
  • Baking
  • Caroling
  • The 12 Days of Christmas
  • Wrapping Gifts
  • Giving Gifts
  • Santa Claus (Who he really was!)
  • Nativity Scenes
  • The Wise Men
  • December 25th
  • Opening Presents
  • Christmas Dinner
  • The Christmas Story

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
