12 days of Christmas Study

Here is a very quick overview of our study this season.

Main Book - The 12 Days of Christmas by Helen Haidle

12  Days of Christmas - the story behind the favorite Christmas song.

I also found an old used workbook that had coloring pages and there are some fun counting books on Amazon.

We started our countdown on the 13th but traditionally it starts on the 25th and goes through Jan. 6th which is Epiphany.

One fun thing we did was to go on a 12 Days of Christmas Ornament Scavenger Hunt.  We went to at least 7 or 8 different stores to find an ornament that represents each day.  Some are traditional and some are hysterical.  Some of my favorites are the Dancing Hippo Lady that represents 9 Dancing Ladies or the western dressed cow that represents Maids a Milking.  We giggled and laughed and joked through the evening and made some wonderful memories.  When we got home we took a gold and silver pens and labelled each ornament and then each day as we read the day, color the sheet (mostly) and put the ornament up.  We also did a small St. Nicholas celebration and a fun St. Lucia Day celebration.
