Christmas is almost here!!! I don’t know who is more excited – me or the kids! But the most exciting thing about this time of year is spending precious time with our tots teaching them about the true meaning of Christmas! There are still a couple of days before the big day! Check out some of these blogs for a few ideas to implement this week.

Mama Alicia over at Motherhood in the Trenches shares an adorable nativity accordion book that relates the story of Christmas with our curious tots! Estimated time to complete the project is only 20 minutes! A project that is short and sweet during these busy days!

School Time Snippets Mama Kristina had a great time with Lil’ Sis exploring different Christmas themed Tot Trays. Be sure to check out all the fun activities and maybe put some into action to keep your Tot engaged while finishing up those last minute Christmas details.

And just in case the stress of all the extra planning and executing of those plans during this busy season has got you in a dither, take a look at Mama Andrea’s blog, Unschool the Teacher. She gently reminds us that even when we are “off schedule” our Tots are learning and we should RELAX!

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
    Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept .
