This unit study, made with love, is jam-packed with mouth-watering, festive recipes to make and bake for Christmas. 

The idea of doing unit studies for the month of December was a way to stretch out the celebration of Christmas because I just love Christmas and making memories with my little lambs. But, I also love to learn and this unit study is full of fun things to learn.

Of course, this unit study is no longer mine as I give it to you. Please adapt it however you need to so that it will work for your family! Cut things out, add things in, and change the days around-it's yours now! I hope this will spark your own homemade Christmas unit studies in years ahead. Merry Christmas! Why not celebrate in Germany this year?
