December PreSchool At Home

December 6, 2011

When I was in grade school I remember the month of December as full of fun and excitement.  There were so many crafts to make, songs to sing, and holiday concerts to prepare for.  I thought that I would try to do the same for Alexa.  We’re both exhausted from all the running around of the last few months, so it’s time for a bit of a break and some relaxed fun.

This month we’re skipping the formal lesson plans in lieu of an advent calendar with a holiday activity a day and a book a night.  You can read all about it on my friend Carrie’s blog – Little Big.  This year we have about 5 Christmasy books so we had to borrow 19 of them from the library HA!  Don’t worry, it’s a huge branch, they have plenty to spare.

Most days we’ll make a holiday craft (some will be gifts for family) or watch a Christmas movie.  Some of the activities are family events away from the house, and some of them will include friends if Alexa’s little buddies want to come over and play.  I have a whole collection of ideas saved on my kid friendly Xmas Pintrest board.

Some of the planned family day’s out include:

  • A trip to see Santa – which we did the big way in NYC with Aunt Resa and Uncle Johann!
  • Riding the holiday train – this is next weekend, cannot wait!
  • Christmas Eve family party – a White Elephant gift exchange, so fun.

Alexa seems to really be enjoying everything so far, and we’re only a few days into the month.  She loves Christmas lights and pictures of Santa (not so keen on the big red guy in person yet).  I think the train ride next weekend will be the biggest hit of the holiday season!

Don’t forget to check out the pictures here on Flickr, I’ll be adding to this album all month.

    Right on, Alexa. Santa still makes me nervous. Why do you have to sit in his lap???!!!!

      HAHAHAHAHAHA she could’ve sat next to him, but by the time we got to the end of the line it had been an hour and a half wait….and she was teething (hence the hand in mouth photo explosion LOL). She was in no mood to be messed with 😛
      And yeah, Santa is a little creepy no matter how nice and golly. I still want her to like him for some stupid reason.
