I’m excited to announce the release date for Christmas around the World is…

TOMORROW!!!! November 13th!

Christmas Around the WorldSo stay tuned because there will be a 20% discount the first 24 hours it is released! Included in the Christmas Around the World unit is enough lesson planning and files for any holiday group activity you hold during December! Camps, group lessons, etc… Literally everything is done for you but the printing and cutting of some of the activities! (and the snacks…)

Don’t do groups? Many of the files can be used as a station activity during your lab, tech time or class. It is a very versatile holiday unit that is chock full of learning and fun! Matter of fact, if you don’t do groups, you may want to check out the individual countries and use them during your lab time or station. Click here to see all available.  (*all the country files will be included in the Group Made Fun: Christmas Around the World unit)

Christmas Around the World (Sneak Peak)

I’ve been working hard on getting the Christmas Around the World camp done. Even though I’ve done this camp before in my studio, I’m pretty much starting from scratch. While it has been quite the project, it’s been a fun journey in research. My husband is getting his daily doses of “did you know?” followed about what I have been learning about these different countries.

I thought I would give you a sneak peak and a tip if this is something you are thinking about doing a Christmas camp or a group lesson. If you follow me on TpT you will be getting notifications as I’m downloading countries. I decided to download the individual countries and then put the camp “bundle” together.

Now the big tip… if you want to have the lesson plans, games, activity ideas and all the countries, you will want to buy the Group Made Fun: Christmas Around the World when it comes out (this will be last available after I get all the countries out).  That will give you the most bang for your buck. If you only want the information on the countries as something you can show during a group class etc… then feel free to purchase the countries individually. Just know that all the countries (and more!) will be included in the Group Made Fun download.

Okay, here is a sneak peak of the countries we will be learning about this year! In addition to sharing Christmas traditions from the United States we will be learning…
