Behind the Scenes of Holidays Around the World

I'm so excited to start our Holidays Around the World next week!  We are going to visit many far away lands and see a glimpse into how they celebrate the holidays.

Here's how we'll prepare our suitcase to travel:

Download the suitcase cover {here}


Inside of the suitcase is a Passport and our Holidays Around the World book {available in my packet}:



Here's a better look at the passport {I seriously just stamp their passports with whatever stamp I can reach in my drawer...hahaha!}:



Download the passport {here}... oh and I made a Canadian page for my friends in Canada, too!


So, there are 12 countries available in my bundled pack, but I can only get to 8 this year! DANG IT! Here's an example of what the next 2 weeks will look like:





And PLEASE don't forget to head over to Sarah's First Grade Snippets for a FABULOUS map for Holidays Around the World. She even has a download for a  map with no countries listed on the side, incase you want to fill in your own. AMAZING! Oh, and see how cute her suitcases are! LOVE!




One last and VERY important thing! If you've already purchase my Holidays Around the World Packet, please go and re-download.  I had one *small* mistake! I accidentally typed the St. Lucia date wrong!  But, if you are like me and already printed your books, I'll just have my kiddos cross out the wrong date and put in the new date {Dec. 13th}.  LOVE YOU ALL!


P.S.  The winner of my impromptu giveaway for this packet {who could guess one of my two favorite Christmas songs} was Bren P. because she guess the NSYNC Christmas song "Merry Christmas"! My other favorite is O Little Town of Bethlehem.  I sang that as a solo at church. Whoaaaaaa! ;)

Cute suitcase idea! I love it! We started this today and did the Netherlands lesson. My kids are so excited to see what they got in their clogs. This is probably one of my favorite of your units. Thanks again!

Welcome to Sweden on Tuesday! Actually on Thursday we celebrate a Swedish Holiday called Lucia. Dressed like santas, gingerbread-men and lucias (white long dress and candles). Hope you'll have a nice trip around the world!

Just wanted to say thank you for making this adorable resource and for adding all these fun extras! I've always wanted to do a unit like this, but couldn't find the time or the resources to make it happen. Finding your packets on TPT was like an early Christmas present. My kiddos and I made our suitcases and passports and flew off to Mexico today, it was magical! Thanks again and happy holidays!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Giuseppe Arcimboldo est probablement né à Milan en Italie en 1527. Il fut un peintre très populaire à son époque pour ses portraits et pour l'organisation des fêtes princières de la cour d'Autriche. Il fut également reconnu comme savant et technicien.Il tomba peu à peu dans l'oubli après sa mort le 11 juillet 1593 à Milan. Au XVIIe et XVIIIe siècle, plus personne ne se souvenait de lui. Il sera redécouvert au XIXe siècle et sera admiré par les peintres du surréalisme, notamment par Salvador Dali.
