Christmas Book Giveaway: The Perfect Christmas Pageant by Joyce Meyer

About the Book:
The popular Everyday Zoo series for young children by beloved and New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer continues with The Christmas Pageant, a heartfelt and humorous story about the true meaning of Christmas. When Hayley Hippo is asked to direct the annual Christmas pageant, she decides this will be her Christmas gift to Jesus and she sets out to make everything perfect. However, after a series of disappointing mishaps, Hayley and her friends learn that they don’t need to be perfect. They realize that Christmas is not about the glittering lights, the perfect setting, or an impressive show, but about Christ.

My Review: 
Many of you have seen my other reviews on Joyce Meyer's children's books, "Which Way to Prayer" and "Field of Dreams."  My kids have become huge fans of the Everyday Zoo characters that Joyce has created and are constantly asking if there is a new book in the series.

Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.    

I had my entire kids hear this story the morning of our Christmas program just to help remind them the true meaning of the program was Christ!   I think reading this story helped them get over any nerves and remember that they were just going to do their best!   After all I think it is all the small imperfections that make a show wonderful.

This book is a great one to add to your Christmas book list to help ensure you are keeping Christ in Christmas! 

This book is available at Zondervan for $15.99 but one lucky winner is going to win a free copy!   Please enter the giveaway using the easy rafflecopter form below.

I haven't seen any plays except the ones put on at Church which is Christ is born in a manger.It's always so good when the kids are doing it.I love Joyce Meyer books so I know this would be a good one. Thank you for the chance & Happy New Year to you & your family :)
I will watch some on tv this year, but I do not think I will be able to see any in person. Some that I have seen in the past that are really good are the Rockettes show, that is really spectacular, and also the Nutcracker, that is my all time favorite.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
