Our Holiday Book Tradition......


Four years ago, after my kids repeatadly asking "How long till Christmas?", I came up with a fun activity to "show" them how much longer. I went around the house and collected all of our Christmas themed books and headed to the local book store to gather a few more bringing our total number of holiday books to 30. Then with the kids helping we wrapped each book in wrapping paper, wrapping "The Night Before Christmas" in a completely different paper then the rest. Once all the books were wrapped we put them under our Christmas Tree. Each night one of the kids picks a book from under the tree, leaving "The Night Before Christmas" as the very last book we read on Christmas Eve.

This was such a huge hit that we decided to do it for Halloween as well and we've been doing it each year ever since.

That is a FAB idea. I don't have kids yet, but I am keeping this one tucked away for when I do. Great tip!
