With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!
Psalm 98:6

Preschool Activities
Here's another fun coloring page to start the day!

My little man loves to make music, so for today's activities, we decorated some empty toilet paper rolls with Christmas colors.  I covered one end with a square of wax paper and slipped a rubber band over the end of the tube to hold the wax paper in place. Then we marched outside to make some Christmas music in a kazoo parade.

Family Activities

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."
Luke 2:13 (NIV)

I personally love listening to Christmas music, any time.  But the season officially starts on Thanksgiving night when we turn up the Christmas music loud while we wash the dishes from our Thanksgiving feast.  Music makes the season.

Ask your kids, what are their favorite sounds of the season?  Take a walk outside for a Seasonal Sounds Scavenger Hunt.  See who can find the most sounds on the list!
  • bells ringing
  • calling birds
  • children laughing
  • crunching snow 
  • drummers drumming
  • elves working
  • fire crackling
  • heavenly singing
  • paws click, click, clicking (maybe not on the rooftop though...)
  • paper rustling
  • pipers piping
  • silence
  • train whistling
