Our Christmas Book and Activity a Day book today was Bunny Christmas ~ A Family Celebration written by Rick Walton and illustrated by Paige Miglio.
Join the festivities, as a cheerful bunny family prepares for a happy Christmas with all the trimmings. Mom and dad, brother and sister, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents come together to make merry. These bunnies really know how Christmas should be celebrated! Rick Walton's rhyming text and Paige Miglio's glorious illustrations paint a heartwarming holiday portrait of family togetherness for all to share.
To go along with the family spirit of the book, we made picture frame ornaments for both of Brynne's Great-grandmas. We used jello boxes and cut them to have a shadow box effect. Then Brynne painted them with a gold acrylic paint. We adorned it with boxwood branches we cut from our bushes and berries made from tissue paper. Lastly we attached a ribbon for hanging. I will order a picture of my four kids and my niece (the great grandkids) to paste into the shadow box frame. They turned out so beautiful!
Really, these books and activities have been so great!
