Google+ Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas: All Aboard - A Celebration of The Polar Express!

All Aboard - A Celebration of The Polar Express!

I LOVE the Polar Express - both the book and the movie,
so I was excited to share a special 
Polar Express Girls Night with the Lil Divas
as part of our Advent Calendar Activities


Here's What I Did:

We started our day with a fun 
Santa Themed Pancake Breakfast -


Later in the day, I snuck in some Polar Express golden tickets beneath the Lil Divas pajamas. They were beyond excited to find both the tickets and a copy of the  Polar Express movie waiting for them after bath time. YAY!


I printed the tickets on special "golden" colored card stock and then made some simple jingle bell bracelets using a small bell & pipe cleaners.


I hid the bracelets in the bottom of the Lil Divas popcorn tub for them to find during the movie!


We sipped on some delicious hot chocolate (with marshmallows & whipped cream!)


and the Lil Divas were so surprised to hear a jingle coming from their popcorn. They of course couldn't resist digging through to find out what it was! They were so happy to find their jingle bell bracelets!

The Littlest Diva kept ringing her bell and saying she believes!


We finished our night by reading the story before bed.


Have you had any Polar Express fun?
I'd love to hear about it!

  1. I just love that book as well. Where did you get the template for the Golden ticket. It gives me an idea for the last day of class. Thanks for the idea
