Creative Christmas Day 4: Christmas Song

| December 4, 2012 | 7 Comments

It is Day 4 of our Creative Christmas Countdown - a virtual Advent Calendar to give you activity inspiration throughout the Advent season. Brought to you by Red Ted Art, Creative With Kids and 24 Kids Activities Bloggers.

Come back each day to see what we have for you.

Today, I have the pleasure to introduce the wonderful Angelique, bringing us the Magic of Christmas through music and video. Angelique, is  a talented multi lingual blogger and  has a wonderful blog full of fun, play, music and is bursting with love and enthusiasm  It is the sort of site you will visit and leave again smiling. She also has a fantastic youtube channel which is well worth taking a peak at!

Head over to Angelique Felix for your special Day 4 of the Creative Christmas Countdown!

Tip of the Day:  Children learn behaviours from us – if they see us being “shy” about singing or “shy” about drawing.. and hear us say things like “Oh I can’t draw to save my life” or “My singing is rubbish”, they will start saying similar things and not believing in their own ability. So, my tip of the day is: don’t be shy. Just go for it. Children will think what you do is wonderful. Encourage them to sing/ draw and to take part, by singing/ drawing and taking part yourself!! Here a post on “Why, How and Tips” to getting craftier with your kids, but it applies to many kids activities.

Tomorrow, for Day 5 of the countdown as well as a new holiday tip be sure to visit Creative with Kids!  

Will you having at today’s Christmas Activity? Do come back and tell us how it went!

    My pleasure Angelique and so lovely to have you part of the Countdown!

  3. Such good advice Maggy – I am possibly the worlds worst singer (yes really I am!) but I sing with the kids and have been known to sing in public with them as want them to know it’s fun and not to be nervous

  4. Red Ted Art says:

    Ah you are a good mum!!! :-)

  5. I really hate signing in public , but try my hardest not to let it show – will make more of an effort now! Thanks for the encouragement!!

    Sounds like you are doing just fine as you are. I know some parents who will not even open their mouths……
