News & Updates
Happy December Sparkle friends!
How have we reached the final month of the year? Now that it's upon us, let's make it sparkling, shall we?
This December, let us help you create a lovely month of sweet celebrations, wonder-filled quiet times, and inspired family together-times! We make it easy with nearly 100 Sparkle stories for Advent and Christmas, plus loads of corresponding crafts and recipes to choose from.
My best recommendations for how to have a Sparkly Holiday Season:
- Choose one of our Audio Advent Calendars (see below).
- Pick a regular, quiet time of day to listen to the daily Advent story.*
- Download the accompanying printable Advent project to enjoy each day!
*Note: the stories can often inspire creativity and play, so I recommend making a regular time that is followed by open-ended playtime.
You can also:
- Add an extra Christmas Sparkle story to your bedtime routine.
- Create some of our favorite crafts for homemade holiday gifts.
- Make a yummy treat using one of our favorite holiday recipes.
- Plan some Advent activities around Martin & Sylvia's Advent stories.
- And there's so much more! Type "Christmas" or "Advent" into the search box on the Sparkle streaming website and you'll find the entire story line-up.
