This week I wanted to push and get another set of bubble letters done. I love the classic Christmas calligraphy letters I put up last week, but thought it would be good to add a more fun and funky Christmas bubble letter set to the site. I’d love to make a felt bunting with these letters to hang in my fireplace room, but that’s probably a little ambitious for my plate this year!
This last weekend I put together 24 activities to stick into our advent calendar. 24 little pieces of paper that say things like “Make Christmas Crafts Today”, “Decorate a Gingerbread House Today” and even “Eat Christmas Cookies for Breakfast Today!” Making Christmas cookies is on the 20th, and I can guarantee you we will be making at least one batch of sugar cookies – they are one of our favorites!
Be sure to check out this incredible collection of anise cookie recipes, too!

The best part about sugar cookie recipes is that they are so versatile. Most of these recipes are quite similar, it’s just the decoration and cutting that sets them apart. Here’s some great examples from Country Living, which gives 2 different slide shows of Christmas cookies all based on one sugar cookie recipe:
Every season, our mad libs are extremely popular. So to follow up our Christmas mad libs, fall mad libs and Halloween mad libs, here are our new winter mad libs for kids! And be sure to come back in the spring for Easter and Valentines Day mad libs, too!
Even in years when I’m not feeling very creative or crafty, somehow we always find the time to make snowflake crafts in our family. My kids are expert paper snowflake makers, and many of our tree ornaments are snowflake crafts. Snowflakes are just so incredibly beautiful and timeless that it’s hard to resist being inspired by them. I know it’s a little early to think about snow (yikes!!), but I don’t have a lot of Christmas and winter crafts posted yet, so I’m trying to get as much of a head start as possible!
