Countdown to Christmas...with books!

My kids love books
and my kids love opening presents
so they were so excited when I told them about this years
Countdown to Christmas.

We gathered up 25 Christmas books (from around our house and from the library),
then wrapped them,
and stuck them in a basket under the tree.
Each night the kids get to pick one book to unwrap and read together before bed.

Tonight was night one and they loved it!

I love this time of year!

Such a cute idea! I've been thinking about something similar to do with my little sister (age: 8). I want to help her expand her vocabulary and hopefully over our Christmas break we can pick up a good chapter book for to read together.

We moved in, and for some time, everything was fine. The installments were somewhat steep, however it was such an arrangement, and we were certain we were building value for what's to come. Payday Loans
