What exactly is Christmas Corner? When my two girls were little, I felt like I was always rushing around during the Christmas season. One day after yelling at my girls to go play so I could finish a project, I realized things needed to change. This is when the inspiration of Christmas Corner came to me.
I took the opportunity to teach my children the Magic of the Christmas Season.
Christmas Corner at our house consists of 3 things.......
Music, Story and a Craft
Each day before we start a craft we sing songs and read a Christmas Story. It is fun to teach them new Christmas songs so they can sing along with the radio or at church. Last year we started a new idea for our Christmas Stories which I found on several blogs. I wrapped 24 Christmas books and we have a
Countdown to Christmas Bedtime Story.
(The girls have to have their bedroom cleaned before they unwrap the present. One room is always clean in our house at Christmas time.)
When I first started Christmas Corner Pinterest didn't exist and so I would find activities from Family Fun Magazine, craft books from the library or websites. Then I started finding them on blogs. I had no idea that there were so many other mom's doing similar crafts with their children. So here is a collage of 25 things we have done over the years for Christmas Corner. If you need instructions on how to do them I have tried to attach the blog or website of where I found each of these idea or a brief explanation below.
