Book Advent: Day 2 {Jingle Bell bracelets}

Hello, my friends!  Thanks so much for your kind feedback about my Christmas book advent.  I also appreciated the tips for Christmas books, too!  I take your advice seriously, and I've quickly tried to reserve all of your recommendations through my library. Here is our book for Day 2:

Jingle Bells... can you get any more classic than that?!  I actually grew up reading this same Jingle Bells golden book, so it was exciting for me to enjoy this with Little Man now.

To celebrate the story, we made Jingle Bell bracelets.  Mr. Oopsey Daisy gets a little squirmy at the term 'bracelet' for his son... so if he asks, these were musical instruments!  After reading the story, we definitely needed to sing the song.  These jingle bell bracelets added the perfect "jingley" touch!
I saw the idea for these bracelets here at Family Fun.  They are fast and simple to make (just what I needed on a crazy day like today!)  
* Take one piece of pipe cleaner and slide jingle bells along it.  You could add beads, too, for an extra special touch.
* Then take a coordinating piece of pipe cleaner and simply wrap it around the first piece like a snake. 
* Twist your two ends together, and you're all done!  Simple and sweet.
Happy Friday!

    Very cute! I remember reading that book when I was little. ♥ My little guy loves bracelets, much to his daddy's chagrin. ;)

  4. I love that your books and crafts go together. What a great idea!

    So, you know how you have 1,673 followers?!? Crazy! I think you should work with Provo Craft so that your first 100 hundred followers, or even 50, get a free cri-cut! Wouldn't that be awesome? I love the Christmas stories!

    So cute! I completely stole your Santa's Beard countdown idea! My little man loves it – I am just not sure he knows that we are counting down to something. But that's okay! Thank you so much for sharing!
