SQUILT Christmas Carols & Birthday Sale

  

I'm pleased to offer SQUILT Christmas Carols

During this miraculous season of our Savior's birth, it is imperative to expose our children to Christmas Carols. We can listen to the carols, analyze them, learn about their origins, and sing them. What a beautiful activity to share with our children! 

It has been impressed upon my heart that our children need quiet times to listen to beautiful music (in this case, carols); they also need to be given the time and space to analyze and learn about that same music. Not only does it build the habit of attention, but it also builds musical knowledge and appreciation.

It's funny how one little thing - like my colored pencils - can bring such comfort.  

These new pencils are one of my "positives".
