Well December is here and that means…..our Elf on the shelf is BACK. Our special little Elf means exciting, memory filled mornings as the kids wake to see what his daily antics are. They love him so. I had to come up with a great way for them to say good bye to him each Christmas until the following year. Last year a special gift appeared all wrapped under the tree on Christmas morning from our friendly little elf. It was a yearbook of his visits for the year and a goodbye message too including a message about the reason for the season.
I am so excited for the kids to be on Christmas break. A week of family time, fun, lots of pj wearing and activities with the kids. Here is a great preschool friendly activity to do with the kids while they are home on break that will really get them in the holiday spirit. Gingerbread Christmas trees made from sugar cones take seconds to set up and frost so the kids can decorate them however they want. An assortment of candies and sprinkles make this a simple, and ultra kid friendly, gingerbread project that will keep there attention just long enough for them to finish the job. If you have little ones – try these fun gingerbread Christmas trees.
