Listening to Christmas Music

My friend and I got the kids together this past week for a musical Christmas themed play date.  We decided it was a good time to introduce them to all the fun Christmas songs.  We used You Tube to listen to the songs and then we did a fun Christmas activity that went along with each. 

Song:  "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
Activity:  We dressed up like Rudolph with antlers I found at Target and painted our noses red.
(This is Little Miss's favorite because it has Santa in the video.  She calls this one the "Ho Ho Ho" song.)  :-)

Song:  "Jingle Bells"
Activity:  We all had jingle bells to play along with the song.

Song: "Frosty the Snowman"
Activity:  We made snowmen out of marshmallows and pretzel sticks. 
(This was probably the biggest hit of the day.)

Song:  "The Little Drummer Boy"
Activity:  We used wooden spoons and couch pillows to play our drums along with the song.
(Little Man loves this song.  He always wants to watch the "Baby" video since it has Baby Jesus in it.)

Song:  "Oh Christmas Tree"
Activity:  We decorated our Christmas trees.
(I found this idea for felt Christmas trees on Pinterest.  I thought it was so cute and super simple to make.)

Song: "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow"
Activity:  We used our snowflakes to dance with the music.

Lunch:  We had reindeer quesadillas.
 (Left over turkey instead of reindeer inside though.)  ;-)
We had a ton of fun!! 

Oh and I have to share.  Our friends made us this advent calendar and yummy cookies as well.
(I'm so excited about this calendar!  She is so creative.  Check out all of her Nik's Naks.)
