You'll need 1 sheet of red or green construction paper 1 sheet of white contruction paper Colored pencils, markers, or crayons Scissors A gluestick
Write each of the twenty-five days of December on the sheet of green or red paper in the form of a calendar. Place each day at least an inch away from the others.
Cut flaps around every day.
Glue the colored sheet of construction paper to the white sheet.
Fold up each flap and draw a Christmas picture beneath it on the white sheet.
As the days go by, rip off each flap, exposing your lovely picture!
You'll need Foamboard Cotton balls Glue Clay Any decorating objects you can find
Cut the foamboard to a good centerpiece size.
Spread out cottonballs and glue them to foamboard to make snow.
Use clay and decorating items to make figures and Christmas scenes to glue on your centerpiece.
You'll need Foamboard or posterboard Colored pencils, markers, or crayons Dice Note cards
Draw a board game path on the foamboard or posterboard. Have the route start at the North Pole and go in a circle back to the North Pole. Put lots of houses along the path. Title the game, "Santa's Christmas Route" or something like that.
Mark every five squares with a Trivia square.
Mark some of the other squares creatively. Like for "Roll Again," say, "Rudolph's nose is brighter than ever. Roll Again." For "Go Forward," say, "Santa drank all of his milk. Go Forward 4 spaces." For "Lose a Turn," say, "Santa ate too many cookies. Wait a turn until he feels better. For "Go Back," say, "Santa forgot to leave little Suzy presents. Go Back 3 spaces to give them to her."
Write out Christmas questions on the note cards like, "Name the nine reindeer," "What color do elves usually wear?" and "Name a Christmas carol which has the word, "snow" in it.
Cut three notecards in half. Draw a different colored Santa on each one. These will be the game pieces.
The youngest player goes first. He or she rolls the dice and goes the number of squares the dice says. The next oldest person goes, and the next oldest, and so on. If someone gets a Trivia square question correct, they move three squares forward. If they get it wrong, they move three squares back. The first person back to the North Pole wins!
