12 Days of Christmas (AK Child & Family style!)

Please enjoy our December blog, a few days after Christmas this year!

We love to sing around here at AK Child & Family. To share our holiday spirit we decided to tweak the lyrics to a very familiar song; knowing everyone knows the tune and can easily sing along. The reference to cookies is of course a nod to storytime where our students enjoy warm chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven– and there was no need to change the drummers drumming because it reminds us of the monthly drum circles we do with our kids.

 

The other ten gifts are things we can all use. For those we serve, these gifts can be just the right healing balm that can turn dark times into light.

 

We pray that you and all those you love have a blessed holiday season filled with music, promise, hope and the Light of the World that is born into our hearts anew each and every Christmas!

 

Now, we know you know the tune – so go ahead – sing away to these custom AK Child & Family 12 days of Christmas lyrics!
