Littles Learning Link Up: December 20, 2016

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child(ren).

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

What have we been up to?

We are on our 2 week Christmas break!! Time to get ready for Christmas. Finish decorating. Get presents wrapped. Send out cards. Watch Christmas movies. Read Christmas books. You get the idea. We still have to have our Canadian meal. That will probably happen next week. Which will also be the week for me to get organized for school starting back up in the new year. I started off this school year nicely organized, but it has slowly fizzled away. I LIKED that organization and need to get it back.

Here are some things I would like to share with you:

A couple of weeks ago I share my Celebrating the Birth of Christ Through Literature Round Up. I shared 10 books that focus on Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas, plus I shared several other Christmas Book Lists from others' blogs. Additionally, I shared nine posts that feature crafts that focus on a specific Christmas book.

I found some wonderful-looking books shared in those posts. In fact, we have been reading through them and are really enjoying them.

Well, we have a great selection of books to read to the children from now through Christmas. Don't forget to check out the post to find some new books to share with your children.

Also, don't forget to check out my Keeping Christ in Christmas Round Up from last year, for fun craft, activity, and snack ideas to help you focus on Jesus this Advent and Christmas season. 

And last, but definitely not least, I just shared my first Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen post in over a year. Last week Melk wanted us to make Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies. There is a recipe for them in the book, The Candymaker's Gift, which is one of the books mentioned in my Christmas book post. I used to make these with my older children, and thought it was about time to make them with these younger kiddos. Stop by and check them out. 

Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I am lining up guest posts for the new year. If you would be interested writing a guest post for Littles Learning Link Up one of these months, please leave a comment or contact me via my contact info on my About Me page. I will need to have your email address so I can contact you. I am looking for posts that have to do with young children: crafts, activities, foods/snacks, tips, or other ideas. I am open to suggestions.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features
