It turns the month of December into a Christmas extravaganza!

    I have been doing this for a good few years, we buy a tree decoration each year, we have a Christmas theme bath with peppermint in it, glitter, baubles etc. we make a Christmas decoration, choose a Christmas themed book, watch a movie, play in the snow ( we make fake stuff from cornflour, glitter etc. the list is endless and they love it.
