I've been working hard on a project for December, and am finally nearing the end. Last minute, of course, but I started so long ago :-) I made a project similar to an advent calendar. Each day has a mini booklet (just one paper, folded in half) and a craft or activity to go with it. I kept it really simple. Each booklet has a short explanation of the theme for the day or a poem, and I found a craft to go with each one. I will be playing music and reading books along with the craft. The week that I have planned for Christmas around the world gets a little more busy, with passports and boarding passes!
Here is the calendar with the theme for each day..
Here's what the first booklet looks like, for the Nativity Story..
I am going to hang our booklets on a posterboard on the wall, or on a door. Or I might make it into a lapbook...haven't decided yet.
Here are the project packs--booklets and the pictures that go on the cover of each booklet. I made them in black & white and color. Click HERE for the project packs
Here is the information for week one, the rest will come soon!
It says to use TP rolls, but I might just tape them
in the back and let them stand on their own.
In the next few days I will post everything for next week. Mon-Fri of next week are "Christmas Symbols"
I'm later than I wanted to be but I hope someone can use this!
