The Crafty Crow shared her wonderful idea for a Christmas Book and Activity Advent. She has a whole list of books and activities, but I’m making my own list to go with the books we already have.
I was already planning to make cinnamon applesauce dough because I am making gingerbread man pins for a craft fair. I mixed up a double batch so the kids could cut out some ornaments, and later today we will be reading Gingerbread Baby. If you don’t have the book, you can listen to Jan Brett read it. We might also print out this board game or decorate a gingerbread house from this mural set. I don’t have time to start it this year, but I love this adorable cross stitch pattern. Wouldn’t that make a cute pillow?
