We host a wonderful Christmas ornament exchange with our Five in a Ro homeschool group. We've been doing this at least 6 years. Each of us makes an ornament to represent one of the FIAR titles. The first couple of years, we didn't sign up for what we were making, but ended up with some duplicates of titles. With that in mind, we decided to sign up for the book titles and are working on having a complete set! :-)
So we sign up for a book (choosing from the titles that have not yet been done) and make our ornaments. We swap the first Sunday in December.
This year, we set out the ornaments with the book. It was a really fun visual and especially nice for the books that might have been unfamiliar to some people. We put the Before Five in a Row books together.
So here are our new ornaments for this year. First the books that are part of Before Five in a Row.
|The Carrot Seed|
|Caps for Sale|
|The Glorious Flight|
|Andy and the Circus|
|The Finest Horse in Town|
|The Hatmaker's Sign|
|Babar, To Duet or Not to Duet|
|Katy and the Big Snow|
|The Story of Ferdinand|
Here are the 8 FIAR ornaments.
These books have been a huge part of our family in so many ways and this is a delightful reminder of the sweet memories that we have made!
