"You can choose any aspect of Christmas as your focus. There are resources for learning about Christmas trees, Christmas music, and Christmas traditions around the world. You’ll find links to Christmas crafts, Christmas recipes, Christmas lesson plans, games, and activities. Pick a theme with your children and set them loose finding the things they want to do. In between activities pause for a little game of Elf Bowling or decorate your computer with Christmas themed wallpaper and icons."

Make ornaments from shrink paper!
"We used the pictures from this page http://images.rca.org/docs/discipleship/jessepatterns.pdf
and printed them out and then traced them on to the shrinking paper, colored them with sharpie markers, put a hole in the top with a hole puncher (you need to make three holes close together or it will not be big enough when you shrink it)  then shrink it, add a ribbon to hang them from the tree and then you are done.  Of you can just print them out on card stock and used these:" www.claudette.shalfleet.net/advent/stump.gif
