CHRISTMAS BOOKS & BREAKFASTS
If you follow me on Instagram or have read this blog for awhile, you know that one of my favorite ways to engage little ones with reading is to pair books with thematic snacks.
During this Christmas season, why not pair some festive Christmas breakfasts with your favorite Christmas books?! This will not only add to your holiday fun, but it will also be a good excuse to sneak in some great books during this time of year (and there are SO many to choose from!)
All of these breakfasts are made from pancakes (my kids’ favorite breakfast food). We use Kodiak pancake mix, but you can use any pancake mix or make them from scratch.
