Holiday Surcees for Kids

I love this photo! It was from our sweet Christmas last year in our apartment. We sold our house on a whim and moved into a two bedroom apartment where the girls shared a bedroom for the first time. It was a year of the best memories all piled on top of each other! Hayden and Scottie grew from 2 to 3 and 4 to 5 during that year. They watched the Grinch 900 times, we baked Christmas cookies, cut down a real tree, became obsessed with The Polar Express and looked forward to the daily Advent calendar like never before. I created this post to round up our favorite Bibles, Advent Calendars and books for the holidays! They would all make great gifts for little ones.

Christmas Surcees for Kids

Kids Read Truth Advent Cards // ***out of stock*** I love these advent cards from Kids Read Truth! I have gotten these for the girls in previous years and think they do an awesome job explaining the Christmas story in a way that kids can understand!

Kids Read Truth Advent Story & Scripture Book // *Out of stock* Same as above! This would be a great book to read through with your kids during the holiday season.

Quilted Advent Calendar // **this link was on the line below with no description**

Pick a Pine Tree Book // A cute book for bedtime reading during the holidays!

The Nutcracker Book // How could you not read the Nutcracker story at least once through the holidays?

Unicorn Stamp Advent Calendar // I love giving the girls interactive Advent calendars through the holidays. This one is too cute!

Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar // Another great option for an interactive Advent calendar!

Little Stockings Advent Calendar // Okay one more because I just had to include this one! How cute are these little stockings!?

Holiday Fill in the Blank Postcards // I love the idea of having the girls write thank you notes after they receive gifts from family and friends. These little fill in the blank notes make it so easy!

Winter Wonderland Puzzle // For those frigid, stay inside days! Not sure how long the girls would last with a puzzle but it could be fun to try.

Animated Musical Storybook // A musical storybook that emanates Christmas joy!

Walk this World at Christmastime Book // Walk This World at Christmastime illustrates the ways people around the world celebrate Christmas!

Wooden Advent Calendar // *Out of stock* Another super cute Advent Calendar for the girls to enjoy!

The Night Before Christmas Book // A Christmastime classic!

‘Elf on the Shelf // I mean, if you haven’t done Elf on the Shelf around the holidays are you really parenting? Kidding, but if you don’t have one yet, you should get one! The girls love waking up every morning to find out what mischief their elf got into overnight.

A Christmas Advent Story Book // Another great bedtime read!

Santa’s Milk & Cookies Set // This would be so fun to gift to the kids on Christmas Eve so they can set out cookies for Santa!
