1st Step: Find 12 books
I was able to find really good deals on 12 Christmas books through Scholastic's book clubs page. While these might not be the hottest Christmas books out there, they are really cute! And 11 out of 12 of them were a dollar!
- Jingle Bells
- Let it Snow
- Counting Christmas
- I love Snow!
- Deck the Halls
- A Very Special Snowflake
- Corduroy's Christmas Surprise
- Merry Christmas, Curious George
- The Gingerbread Man
- The Little Red Sled
- The Berenstain Bears and the Joy of Giving
- The Night Before the Night Before Christmas
2nd Step: Add activities
Inserted in each book is a sticker with three corresponding activities. For example, inside the book Jingle Bells is a sticker that says "Make bell shakers to use while singing "Jingle Bells", Act out like you are riding in a one horse open sleigh, Play jingle bell tag." Prior to reading the book, I can easily glance at the list and choose an activity (or two) to do with my daughter after reading (or before reading- depending on the prior knowledge required for the activity).
I am really excited to share these Christmas stories with my daughter and not only build up our Christmas book collection, but build more memories together!! :)
