Well, one of our all time family favorite Christmas books is "The Christmas Lizard" by Cory Edwards - it's a story of how a pet lizard travels up through the Christmas tree to discover the real meaning of Christmas. It just isn't the Advent season until we cuddle up and read this one together.
Of course - I couldn't wait to share it with my literature class at co-op!
Our project was an Advent paper chain, in the shape of a Christmas Tree. I found this cute idea on Pinterest. Check out my Christmas board for lots of great ideas! It just takes 25 colored paper strips and a stapler!!
It was a tad more complicated to assemble than it looked...and we ended up using up all our time and missing the literature part of literature class - opps! But, they loved having their very own countdown to Christmas. Both my girls think it's too cute to pull apart - so they just hung them up.
It's a great story, you'll love it!
