In addition to our countdown, Gracelyn and I have worked on a couple fun projects during school for some additional Christmas preparation.
The first of the month, we made some Frosty Friends with a kit from Hobby Lobby:
Today we made a Nativity from popsicle sticks, yarn and a yellow pom pom. My friend Angie made this craft with her preschoolers last week...she found the idea from pinterest. Gracelyn was picky about making it accurate, so we improvised with the hay, the star, and the manger (it had to have legs! It wasn't easy to break the sticks into little pieces...go figure):
What fun things have you been doing for Christmas prep?
