Today the kids opened up their books before school. They got two Berenstain Bears books: Meet Santa Bear and Trim the Tree and Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas by Jane O'Connor.
There wasn't any time to craft before school, but they are always very eager to read their books right after they open them.
After school we crafted a bit. In the Fancy Nancy book their tree topper breaks and they make a homemade topper. I thought it would be fun for the kids to make their own tree topper. Lowell came up with the very colorful creation below.
