Book: How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
Activity: tinsel trees
For me, it just wouldn't be Christmas without seeing The Grinch and A Charlie Brown Christmas. My favorite part of The Grinch is when he makes a Santa suit for himself and dresses Max up as a reindeer. For some Grinch activities to print out click here. There are some interesting interviews and information for adults over at NPR here.
I am in love with this miniature tinsel tree tutorial over at the Puchi Collective. Make the trees now and in a few days we'll be making some miniature decorations to put on them!
Activity: Miniature Tinsel Trees
•silver chenille stems
•wire cutters or old scissors
•optional: spool of thread
Great step-by-step directions and pattern here. Younger kids will have a harder time with this but they can help with stem cutting and opening the branches. I recommend to start cutting the longest lengths of chenille stems first and use some of the leftovers for the smaller branches.
