Christmas Books and Activities

 I can't even believe I am already writing this post!

Last year we participated in a Christmas Book and Activity a Day project with my friend Shannon at Peace, Love and Rainbows. It was so fun and really got us in the Christmas spirit.

I decided that this year we will do the same. We will do three books per week, with an activity attached to each.

Here are the first six books we will do. I have a general idea about activities, but will post the specifics of them later when I get them finalized.

Snowbear's Christmas Countdown byTheresa Smythe (make a countdown chain)

Snowmen at Christmas by Caralyn Buehner (make shaving cream snowmen)

The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie de Paola (a poinsettia craft)

The Last Snow of Winter by Tony Johnston (make snow-doh)

A Wish to be a Christmas Tree by Colleen Monroe (christmas tree craft)

Santa's Snow Cat by Sue Stainton (a cat in a stocking?)

We will start the Monday after Thanksgiving. Join us if you'd like!


  1. I love this idea and I want to join you! I will reserve these books from our library and be ready to go after Thanksgiving! I think this is a wonderful idea! :-)

  2. What a great idea! I have been meaning to do some Thanksgiving activities this month, but the days are flying by! Dec 1 I plan to start some Christmas stuff. Thanks for a great book list!

  3. sounds fun can't wait to see what you guys make :)


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
