Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney If your kid is a Llama Llama fan, then check out this holiday version of the book. In this story, Mama Llama is busy preparing for Christmas. Little Llama has nothing to do but wait. (Sound familiar?) This results in a little holidrama (aka. meltdown) for Llama llama. Mama is reminded to stop and remind Llama that they need to take time in their busy holiday to snuggle, hold each other close, and spend time with each other.
I decided to take some time out from the holidrama to spend some time crafting with my littlest guy. He doesn’t always get as much attention as his big brother did at this age (clearly, he doesn’t even have all of his clothing on– just pj bottoms). I wanted an easy project that a 22 month old could do with momma while his brother was distracted with video games.
We made this dramatic Christmas tree. I gave Tyson 3 green lids. To avoid a holiday meltdown, I gave Tyson one lid at a time. We started with stickers. Then used glue and buttons. We finished up with the grand finale of glitter glue. I then glued his three decorated lids to green paper and we topped it off with a yellow “star” lid. You could always decorate the star as well, Tyson’s attention was beginning to wane at this time. I added a trunk as well.
Tyson was very proud of his finished art work, and I think he enjoyed his 1 on 1 crafting time with momma!
This is Day #2 of the 12 Days of Christmas at Ready. Set. Read! and Reading Confetti. Yesterday Lori shared a great book about a family who had a Christmas tree that was too large to fit into the house– and a Christmas tree craft that is perfect for preschoolers!
In case you missed it, I had a Christmas Tree Puzzle that you can make yourself!
Don’t forget, you can find all of our crafts at the 12 Days of Christmas Pinterest board.
