25 Days of Christmas Picture Books - Day 19

It's going to be another quick post tonight. Today was a crazy day filled with gingerbread and this amazing art:

Via Artsonia

I cannot find the original picture that I saw, but this was the basic idea (this picture is from Artsonia). We used pastels and metallic sharpie for the cap of the ornament. I loved seeing how they turned out. This is also a great lesson to teach about shading (which we attempted).

So onto today's picture book. Who's That Knocking on Christmas Eve? by Jan Brett.

Via Amazon
Jan Brett has so many great Christmas books and I was lucky enough to find a pack of them in the last Scholastic order. If you're looking for an author study to do in the weeks before Christmas, Jan Brett and her books would be a great choice.

Alright, I'm off to rest before it starts all over again tomorrow!
