Christmas Countdown-27 Days to Christmas

The kids are excited about Day 1 and they're eager to share their suggestions on ways we can celebrate the season.

For today, we did our Bible reading from John 1. I decided that we'd have a "star" theme for today's activities. We sang "We Three Kings" and its "star of wonder" refrain. Our book for today was "S is for Star: A Christmas Alphabet" by Cynthia Furlong Reynolds. We then cut easy origami-type paper stars. Each child used one of their stars to make a thank-you card which we'll use after Christmas. We'll also use these stars to decorate the house and eventually the Christmas tree as a way to re-focus our attentions during the busiest times of the upcoming season.
