My friend Amy gave me the idea to do a storybook countdown and because my little man loves to be artsy I though it would be fun to do a story and a craft. I found 12 'Christmas' or 'winter' type books and came up with cute crafts to go with each book.
We have NOT started our countdown yet so our crafts are not actually done but I wanted to post this to give others ideas in case they wanted to do something similar.
so here we go!
12 days till x-mas:
|Book: White Snow Bright Snow Craft: Shaving cream art|
|Book: Clifford's First Christmas Craft: stocking with scrap pieces of paper or fabric|
|Book: Clifford's Christmas Craft: pull apart and glue cotton balls|
|Book: Penguin's Big Surprise Craft: glue and color penguin|
|Book: There was an old lady who swallowed some snow! Craft: Glue and color snowman|
|Book: The Penguin ho wanted to be different Craft: Foot print penguin!!|
|Book: A Charlie Brown Christmas Craft: decorate ice skate, tin foil and string for laces. and of course watch the movie!!!|
|Book: Olivia helps with Christmas Craft: decorate gingerbread man craft and Trader Joes Really BIG Gingerbread man kit!|
