{25 Days of Christmas: Day 5}

Our book for today was Dear Santa by Rod Campbell.

We got Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell for Christopher's first birthday and it is still a big hit! He loves to lift all the flaps and read along so I knew he would love this version as well.

Our activity for today was to write a letter to Santa. As Christopher gets older I'm hoping that Santa will write letters back but for this year we are keeping it simple. I also loved the idea of having a letter writing party like Uncommon Designs and am hoping to do something like that next year.

"Dear Santa..."
Thinking about what else to put on his letter
Christopher's finished product and the "translated" version!

I also introduced Christopher to our Santa Mr. Potato Head and he has LOVED putting him together and taking him apart over and over again. I wasn't sure if he would be ready for it but it was, and still is, a huge hit!

Our Santa letterhead was found here.

In case you are just joining us, here is the post with all the Christmas books.
