Do you Believe in the magic of Christmas? We sure do! One of our absolute favorite family Christmas movies is The Polar Express. It’s great fun to watch. In fact, we usually make a whole night out of it complete with hot cocoa and “Believe” Bells – only those who Believe can hear it ring. It is so important to me for my children to Believe in the magic and true spirit of Christmas, and I love this message within the movie.
The kids love having their own Believe bells, just like in the movie – and they make great gifts to hand out to their classmates!
The children just love jingle bells and it gives them the simple reminder to Believe! Not just to Believe in Santa, but to believe in kindness, in love, and in happiness – all the wonderful things that we experience this time of year.
These bells are simple to make and can be prepared ahead of time to hand out to the children or you can make this a simple craft to do during class or at a family friendly Christmas party.
