Christmas ABC's

Last year (2010) we did an ABC Christmas Countdown!
 As we counted down the days to Christmas we decorated a letter each day with something Christmas-y. 
And some days we also did an activity to go along with the letter.

After the countdown, I put all the letters into a small photo album that we are going to enjoy looking at THIS year!

For more information on how I prepared this countdown, click HERE.

Merry Christmas!

Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys!
