Looking for some new additions to your stack of Christmas read-alouds? Check out this roundup of the best Christmas picture books of the year. The Crafty Crow shares more books and related activities in daily posts.
It’s not Christmas in our household without kidmade decorations. There is a lot of fun stuff out there (keep an eye on The Crafty Crow for a selection of the best): paper snowflakes, wreathes, tissue paper angels, glittery initial ornaments, oh my!
I checked out A Classical Kids Christmas from the library, and we really liked it. The Christmas narrative is interspersed with carols (usually not the whole song, alas) and poems. This CD also includes Christmas traditions from around the world. I’m going to get a copy for our own collection.
And since Christmas apparently means cookies (I have sugar cookie dough in the fridge right now, waiting to be rolled, cut and decorated by two excitable children), check out Allrecipes’ Christmas baking collection. Yum, yum!
