Christmas Preparation

This year I really want to do a lot of Christmas activities with Talia leading up to Christmas. I love Christmas for so many reasons, and I want her to experience the joy of the season. From gift giving and service to decorating & creating the Christmas atmosphere in our home to the true meaning and story of Christmas.

So, I'm starting now to gather ideas for activities to do with her come December.

Ideas I've found surfing just three blogs that I hope to try this year are as follows:

From Chasing Cheerios:

- Jinglebell Bracelets
- Clove oranges

From Filth Wizardry:

- Salt dough ornaments
- newspaper/streamer wreaths
- homemade advent calendar
- tights snowman
- cardboard Christmas trees


Stained glass paper trees from Alphamom

Popsicle stick tree ornaments from A Homeschool Journey

Candy Cane Syrup from Storybook Woods

Pipecleaner/bead Ornaments from Make and Takes

Santa Claus Card from Tutus and Turtles

Sparkly Pinecone Ornaments from Mom in Madison

Reindeer Paperbag from Mommy's Little Helper

I'll be adding more ideas as I come across them!

Now, please, if you're reading this, and you have any ideas (or great blog resources!), please share them in the comments section!

  2. I just wanted to tell you how much I love this new blog of yours!!! I love the links too, as I am up way past my bedtime going through all these ideas! We are homeschooling our children and so I have been stocking up on fun activities and unique and creative learning ideas pretty much since I learned of my first pregnancy. My frustration is that I sometimes push Ben into things he is not ready for...at just 2 he likes building simple towers and pouring water from one cup to another over the sink...he still licks paint brushes and likes to stick stickers on his face...not paper. I have to just go with the flow...but my "IDEAS" folder just got a lot thicker thanks to you! Just wait until we get to the three's!!! (if he is still eating glue and paint then...maybe we have a problem???) for now wish us fun in our bubbles and water...
