PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Take a trip around the world this holiday season as we discover some of the traditions and legends in 14 different countries!
This keepsake book includes a short sentence about each country and a craft to go along with it. It will supplement any around the world holiday unit you are planning with your kids.
Countries included are:
Scandinavia
Australia
Denmark
Germany
Mexico
England
Holland
Wales
Philippines
Russia
Israel
Italy
U.S.A
France

"Holiday Celebrations" is designed as a book for students to make and keep forever. Each student made page could also be a stand-alone project or a class made book (where each child makes a different page).

Most pages are very simple to complete and require materials that you probably already have. A few of the pages are a little more detailed which is why I think it would be suitable for K-3rd grade.

Take the opportunity this holiday season to make a memory with your students that will last a lifetime! Kids and parents will love re-visiting this book for years to come.

On  December 18, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hi Michelle,
Thank you for sharing this great resource! We are having so much fun making each page. Tomorrow we plan on completing the Australia page and I notice that the template for the body is not included anywhere. Was that page inadvertently left out? Or did you have the kids create that one part on their own? Thank you! Deborah
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 18, 2012Mrs Whary answered:
Hi Deborah,
I just checked my patterns again..... I used the body for Mary/Joseph but I forgot to write it in the instructions. Sorry about that! You could have the kids cut out their own if you want( I think it looks cuter when they do). I'm glad you're enjoying it!

On  December 15, 2012Sharon Hampson (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, Just wondering if this unit only covers Christmas celebrations or is it a variety of different celebrations throughout the year. Looks fantastic!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 15, 2012Mrs Whary answered:
Hi Sharon,
Thanks for your inquiry. This packet only covers Christmas celebrations, however your question raises a great idea about a future project covering other celebrations.
Thanks so much,
Michelle

Looking for one pattern-I don't see the pattern for icing on the Christmas pudding for England. If it is there-will you please tell me what page it is on? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 13, 2012Mrs Whary answered:
Hi there,
That's so weird - of all the hundreds of this product that have been bought, no one has alerted me to this!!!!! I checked it out and you're right, it's missing!!! Sorry about that!!!! I'm recovering from a c-section so my suggestion for right now is to use the pattern for the christmas pudding and just cut a wobbly line to cut it in half - that way you can use the other side for another pudding too.
Once again, sorry about that and thanks for letting me know!!!!!

I purchased this product and had the same issue with the font. The letters are squished together and it is very hard to read. I will email you and would love to try it again. Hoping to use this in the next few weeks before the holiday. I'll try to open it in Adobe too. I am using a MAC.

On  November 20, 2012Mrs Whary answered:
Hi there,
Yes, with a MAC, you need to open it in Adobe directly.....tpt has some answers to this on their FAQ page....seems that MACS tend to have this problem. It should work from you - I haven't heard back from anyone else after they've tried this - hope it works for you too....
On  November 18, 2012Anna Pellew (TpT Seller) asked:
Just downloaded this - love it! But the font on each of the pages is different to the one in the picture. The large title font is ok, but the small font at the bottom of each page looks funny (not your cute normal fonts!)! I have the most up to date adobe reader. What have I done wrong!? Thanks :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 18, 2012Mrs Whary answered:
Hi there,
That's really weird! Are you using a MAC by any chance? If so, did you open the document in adobe (and not just by clicking on it)? If not, if you email me, I can email you the file and see if that works!
