Christmas Movies for Toddlers

rugratsThere are only a few days left to watch Christmas movies before the big day so here are the ones we have been watching at my house. Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure: One day my daughter came home from preschool and kept going on and on about a fox named Swiper who was “on the naughty list”. I had no idea who Swiper was, but apparently he was going to swipe all of our Christmas presents and my daughter seemed very concerned. I did a quick Google search to find out who this nefarious character was and I discovered he was on Dora. I checked out a copy to watch at home since Swiper had made such an impression and it was really cute. My daughter’s concerns were valid; Swiper was a naughty fox, indeed. Luckily, Dora and her friends help teach him a lesson. We also enjoyed some old classics like Santa Claus is Comin' to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I wasn’t sure if the Winter Warlock and the Abominable Snowman would be too scary for a 2-year-old, but once she saw their softer sides they became her favorite parts of the movies. I was super excited to watch Rugrats: Turkey and Mistletoe. I actually checked this one out for myself since I grew up on Nickelodeon, but it was an added bonus that my daughters also loved it. Other favorites were: Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Merry Christmas Peanuts: Snow Days, and  Mickey Saves Santa .

Fruits and Veggies

My daughter loves fruit and vegetables to the extreme. She begs me for extra servings of things like avocado, broccoli, and peas almost every day. She has always had very mature taste buds. Even when I tempt her with glazed donuts for breakfast my child turns her nose up to them in favor of steak and eggs. I ask her if she wants a cookie and she replies, "Nope! I want bwo-co-lee and mango!" This is a great thing and I consider myself very lucky not to have the nightly dinner struggle that some parents of picky eaters endure. I can even use vegetables as collateral, like some parents use lollipops or jelly beans. The words, "get out of the bathtub right now or I'm giving your sister all the broccoli!" not only works like a charm, but also are packed with vitamins.

To celebrate her love of fruits and veggies we have been checking out library materials that follow that theme, but if your child is not as gung-ho for the tomato try out these books and video and see if they'll give peas a chance.
