Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas!  I hope you have enjoyed my Christmas Books series!  We had a lot of fun reading the different stories that shared the birth of Christ.  And I really extended myself by doing a craft with each book.  Be sure to make comments on any of my Christmas Books posts to enter to win a children's Bible.  Giveaway ends on December 31.  Tell me what  favorite book or craft that we did that you liked.  I LOVE comments!

Today we are going to make cookies for our neighbors and also do a fun and interactive Christmas story.  Here is a resource that I found from Family Life. What God Wants for Christmas is a nativity activity where kids open up 7 little boxes and the last one is surprise!  What do you think God wants for Christmas?  YOU!

MGM cookies- a tradition

Here is the link to the recipe!

Learning about "What God Wants for Christmas" and cooking cookies together is a good activity for parents and children.

This sounds like my kind of book! How precious that the last one is "You"!
