Here’s a quick post with an idea on how to teach your kids “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
My granddaughter is “5 ½ and ¾,” which is pretty close to the truth. She’ll be 6 in a month.
Anyway, way back in the day, when I was expecting my second baby in February, I was going crazy with anticipation. I decided to needlepoint “The 12 days of Christmas” for Christmas Decorations. 22 stitches per inch! I must’ve been out of my ever-lovin’ mind!
These all go on our little tabletop tree in our eating area, and my granddaughter asked about them, so I filled her in and we started singing “The 12 Days of Christmas.” We’re regular Von Trapps, here.
Well, she couldn’t remember the words, of course. So I came up with the idea that if I printed out the lyrics, and drew some pictures, she could sing along.
Given my lack of artistic ability (the cow looks like a big fat lab with a growth between her legs), it was a miracle that she could then remember the lyrics.
It’s worth a try and it’s a lot of fun!
