Craft ideas:
•  Make a gift for someone you love - maybe a holiday decorated cylinder vase with paper?
•  Make an angel-pig topper for you're your tree, with a cone body and wings.
•  Make Christmas quilts with patches contributed by each of the other children.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
