Christmas Sensory Kit
When Jingles, our elf arrives he likes to bring some fun things for the kids to do and wear throughout the Christmas season. This year he is bringing each of the kids pjs, holiday shirts, Christmas Hot Wheels and a Cabbage Patch for Stella!
Felt Christmas Tree
I found this giant Christmas Tree that you can hang on the wall and I thought it would be great especially for Stella to put ornaments on the tree.
