Christmas Activities For Kids

Keep the festivities going with a Christmas unit study for kids. We have some great ideas to get you started!

First, we always suggest starting by reading books. Reading aloud is great for kids’ development and can help them to increase their vocabulary, learn, and use their imagination!

Below are some of the top Christmas books to read to your kids!

Dasher: This wonderfully illustrated Christmas book for kids gives you the back story on one of Santa’s favorite reindeer, Dasher! Girls will especially love to read this since Dasher is a girl.

Construction Site On Christmas Night: Fans of the fun characters of the construction site books have to add this Christmas themed story to their collection. See how the trucks get ready for Christmas!

How To Catch An Elf: Kids everywhere love the silliness of this Christmas story. The rhymes and the illustrations will draw the kids in as well. This is a Christmas book kids will want to read every year!
