Day 24: Harlem Macaroni Kid Countdown to Christmas

Family Traditions: Write a Letter to Santa

By Tamika, Harlem Macaroni Kid December 1, 2021

I can't believe Christmas is in 23 days! 

I'm totally not ready! We love Christmas and love creating new memories and traditions that she can pass down to her family one day in the future.

On our social media pages, we will be counting down to Christmas with different activities we will do every afternoon or evening. I hope you will follow along or do the activities as well. If you do, don't forget to tag us on your social media pages. 

Here are some things you may need to follow along:

  • paintbrush and liquid paints 
  • glue sticks, tape, and poster tack
  • scissors and hole punch
  • ruler
  • old sponge
  • string, ribbon, and thread
  • pencils and felt-tip pens
  • envelopes
  • red and green paper-and other colors will work too
  • old newspapers, magazines, and gift wrap cardboard boxes, egg cartons, and tubes.
