I love the Christmas season! While there are so many things to do this time of year, we still make it a reading a priority. Today I’m sharing with you a FUN way to countdown to Christmas with books!
To set this up, I gather our Christmas books and check out books from the library. Then I wrap them up with paper from the Dollar Store. I place them in no particular order by the tree for the kids to see.
My kids LOVE to find 25 wrapped books next to our Christmas tree. Even though most of them are library books, they still think it’s so much fun to open 1 book each day to read. They enjoy the unwrapping part and finding out which mystery book we will read that day! It’s truly a wonderful activity and I love that it brings them so much excitement. They just wish they could open up 5 every day!
Here are the 25 Christmas books we will be reading this month:
2. Silent Night
23. Musical Nativity
Even if you can’t do all 25 this year, you can join in a little late! Or pin this idea to save for next year.
Make this Christmas Book Countdown a tradition your kids will look forward to every year! Merry Christmas!
