Book Summary: A precious little child wanders through the house on a snowy Christmas night offering a prayer of thanks and blessing. The child finishes with thanks to God for the greatest Gift of all. Noting all the characters in the Nativity, this lovable little nighttime prayer book has interactive dialogue and soothing rhyme for a child to repeat as they look around their world at Christmastime.
I'm not sure about you, but the month of December is super crazy at our house! Add a very colicky new baby to the mix, and normal school activities just about didn't happen for us this month. When we did find a few spare moments for school activities, we chose to make memories and focus on Jesus.
We did Truth in the Tinsel for Advent. Since we were crafting every day, this counted as our art and then some! Jonah loved them all and he learned so much! His favorite part was having his very own tree in his room that held all of his Truth in the Tinsel ornaments.
Jonah loved playing with our Wooden Nativity Puzzle Playset to retell the Nativity story. (This Nativity Puzzle was a gift several years ago. I can't find the exact puzzle online to link to, but this Wooden Framed Puzzle - NATIVITY SCENE SET - Colored Components is the closest thing I can find on Amazon. Our puzzle is from Peaceful Joinings Puzzle Co.) On occasion, I would find extra characters and cars at the Nativity.
Letters, Numbers, & Writing:
Jonah enjoyed the Nativity Preschool Pack from 1+1+1=1. He was especially proud that he wrote the beginning letters all by himself and didn't want to erase it until Daddy saw his writing.
Fine Motor/Caring for Others:
Jonah helped me make some Christmas goodies for his Sunday School teachers. Unwrapping the Hershey's Kisses was perfect work for his little hands! (Photo from my Instagram stream)
I hope your CHRISTmas was full of memories and Jesus, too! Blessings for the New Year!
