Wonderful Adventure Wednesday – Polar Express Night

During the month of December we try to do a fun family activity a day to make the month special.  This year we are starting a new tradition – Polar Express Night.  A couple of things that you should know: 1. The Polar Express is one of my favorite books of all time;  2. The movie is already a favorite with our children.  So it’s only natural that we would incorporate it into holiday traditions. But it wasn’t until I read a post by Teach Mama  that I decided to make it an annual tradition.

So here goes, the plan for our Polar Express Night.

During the day

  • Make Cookies

After Dinner

  • Get into Pajamas
  • Read the Book
  • Play the Polar Express Game
  • Watch the Movie  (Before the hot chocolate song starts – pause the movie and get hot chocolate and cookies for everyone to enjoy)
  • Make Polar Express Ornaments (Here is the inspiration for our Polar Express ornaments from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.)

Do you have a favorite family tradition?

Have a Great Week!
