Christmas Activity Book

This Christmas Activity book was our first activity at our 2009 Grandkid's Christmas Day Camp.

This project started with a simple 3 prong folder (bright Christmas red) with pockets. (I had picked them up really, really cheap from the back to school clearance sales.) As I have told you before I think about and plan for the Grandkid's Christmas Dap Camp all year long!

The kids first colored a very cute poke-a-dot mitten that included their name. (A coloring page I found free on line.) They then cut it out and glued it to the front of their folders. We then attached a new Christmas pencil to the folder using a 20" piece of white yarn. We tied and taped the yarn to the pencil just below the eraser then stapled and taped the other end of the yarn to one of the inside pockets of the folder. We covered any sharp staple spots with a Christmas sticker.

I had made copies of all kinds of Christmas activities that I had found on line to fill the pockets of the folder. Word searches, puzzles, Christmas coloring pages, dot to dots, snow flake cutting patterns, Christmas trivia, simple Christmas crosswords, and more.

The kids had a great time putting this project together and anytime they needed something to do they had their very own activity book and they knew right where a pencil was too!
