To prepare for the 12 Days of Christmas you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials. We purchased 12 gift bags from our local dollar store. They were 2 for $1. You can staple or glue the daily labels onto the bags.
The suggested read-aloud books are not included. Check out your school or local library. Most can also be purchased online or in Scholastic’s book club orders, though you can also choose your own books that go along with the daily themes.
