Joyeux Noël!

A fun way for the kids to get involved and celebrate the arrival of the festive season is to let them make their own Christmas crackers, and Rosetta Stone kindly sent this fantastic cracker-making kit so we could do just that.

The kit provided enough to make ten crackers in two fun designs of Father Christmas & a snowman (all we needed was some glue, a pair of scissors and some sticky tape), and also included hats and jokes to place inside. It was a really fun activity and H, A & E sat with me around the table and we got 'cracking' (sorry - that was inexcusable, I blame my exposure to the cracker jokes).

The kit also came with full instructions as well as a sheet of unusual words from different languages to add to the crackers, I wonder - do you know what Yupienalle means? A great conversation starter!

We'll also be trialling the Rosetta Stone French language course in preparation for our family holiday in the Summer.

The course provides an interactive online studio including games and live chat assistance with native speakers in which to learn your chosen language, we can't wait to give it a try and see how much we can learn before we set off - currently my level is at 'Bonjour' & that won't get me very far!

So Joyeux Noël from us - we hope you have a lovely time however you spend it and whoever you spend it with. Au Revoir!
