100daysadventWhoops.. I was a few days late on this one :)

The days leading up to Christmas are some of the most exciting days of the year for kids. Take advantage of this excitement by getting in some quality family time. One fun way to do this is to create a new reading tradition with your kids. This will establish a fun Christmas tradition that gets them excited to read and ebbs their need to open presents.

To start, buy 25 books before December starts. Pick whatever books you think your kids will like. You can stick with a Christmas theme or just pick interesting books for your kids. Wrap each of them individually and put them in a stack under the tree. Each night in December, let your kids pick one of the books from the stack. Let them unwrap it and then enjoy reading it together before bed. Get books of varying shapes and sizes. This will make your book pile look even more fun and it will make it hard for your kids to decide which book to open that night! By the time Christmas comes, you’ll have 25 new books to read with your kids and a nice routine. To save money with this, buy books from the Dollar Store. They have a great selection of books!

You can even buy these books used, I often buy books at yard sales and thrift store for pennies.

This is a great, frugal way to celebrate the season and build up your child’s library.
