Yes, the Christmas hustle and bustle has already begun and it is going by fast. It may only be December 3rd, but it will be Christmas before you can blink. Taking time to savor the blessings and miracles of the season can be hard if you have little ones who are probably jumping out of their skin. They can’t wait for Christmas to arrive. If you need a paced schedule and atmosphere for your activities try Snowbear’s Christmas Countdown by Theresa Smythe. Read about and follow Snowbear through the month of December as he counts down each day as Christmas approaches.
If you are really wanting your children to settle in and talk about the true meaning behind Christmas, you can share other polar bear tales as well. Lisa T. Bergren has written the “God Gave Us” series of children’s books that deal with those who, what, where and WHY questions that children ask. Christmas is truely a time when duties and activities run us ragged and the meaning behind the madness gets lost. So share God Gave Us Christmas and God Gave Us Love this Christmas season. Journey with Little Cub as she learns about Christmas and Love.
