This week’s featured book for the Virtual Book Club for Kids is Merry Christmas Mouse! by Laura Numeroff. In the book, Mouse decorates the Christmas Tree as he counts on the different ornaments to the tree. From one star through to the 100s more to go there is a lot of different ornaments that are added. Surprisingly our tree when we had toddlers and preschoolers looked something like this too as the kids loved to add their toys to the tree as well.

However, we have a fun ornament that you and your child can make together to feature their name and other family members names helping them to learn to read the names of the people most important to them. Here is our letter activity to create some Name Ornaments you can hang on the Tree.

A little less edible that most weeks cooking activity! In fact, don’t eat these at all. But one of our favourite and easiest ornaments to make Salt Dough Ornaments.

Dig out the cookie cutters and get making and hang your decorations for all to see.

Merry Christmas Mouse Art Activity

This week we have a Process Art activity rather than a craft for you and your preschoolers to do.

Get painting with your ornaments. If you want after you have painted you could cut them into ornament shapes and create some pictures for the wall with them once dried.
