This post is part of the 30 Days of Christmas event hosted by A Sink Full & The Simple Things.
This event was supposed to start Monday- There were a few things that happened right before my trip- the posts were supposed to go automatically (I have never done this before) and they did not work. I am REALLY REALLY sorry but will be putting all of these up between now and Sunday with the rest to follow as scheduled!!
The Christmas Dream is a welcome respite from the overstimulation of the season. On the recording, children learn to relax in Reindeer Flight Training, fly with Santa on a Global journey, hear prayers from around the world, and learn to care for all people. It was created for children, ages 3-9.
I was very anxious to listen to the Christmas Dream. My kids are hyper and have a very hard time falling asleep at night, especially when our days are non-stop busy. AshLynne (5) & Kasen (3) LOVED the CD. When I first put it in, they were very excited to listen. Patti does a great job in getting their attention. In a very soothing, gentle voice she guides them through two bedtime routines.
During the second routine children’s beds turn into Santa’s sleigh as they take a trip around the world with Santa. This part teaches generosity even with how hectic life can be during the holidays. Children fly to the moon, over mountains and across seas. They have the chance to hear prayers from around the World and learn to care for others. They are usually out before this part is over.
I enjoyed listening to this CD also. It really helped me to relax and made me sleepy. AshLynne & Kasen ask for this CD before bed almost every night. It would also be great to take along for long car rides. This is a must have CD this Holiday season!
