I always love when my Hallmark Press Pause boxes arrive on my doorstep, and this Christmas package was no exception. (My decorations are already up, of course, but I can always add more!) Read on for details, and a chance to win one of my favourite items!

Here’s what I found inside my care package:

Santa: Be In The Story book, Pics ‘n’ Props Christmas Fun Kit, Yule-K-Lele, Totally Ticklist Goofy, ‘Let It Snowmen’ 5 Piece Ornament Set, ‘Blink Along’ Musical Scarf and an assortment of holiday greeting cards

I love how these props can all be used for photo ops and celebrations – perhaps as part of your Christmas card photo?

Santa and the Christmas Eve Flight: Be Part of The Story
Hallmark has come out with tons of great books, and ‘m particularly a fan of their recordable books, where kids can hear beloved adults reading to them even when they can’t be there. This one’s a bit different: when highlighted lines in the book are read aloud, Santa replies with a question for your child. Once he/she answers, Santa responds back, and the story continues. Very fun and interactive, and a great way to motivate little ones to enjoy books! (Psst – this is the prize I’m giving away!)

So much fun for kids and parties, this “instrument” plays six holiday songs and as you strum faster, the song speeds up with you. Do you think I’ll actually be able to convince anyone that I’m musical? My students *might* fall for it…

Want to win a Santa and the Christmas Eve Flight: Be Part of the Story book? All you have to do is leave a comment below, making sure there’s a way for me to contact you if you’re the winner. This contest will have a quick turnaround so the winner gets time to enjoy the prize before Christmas, so the draw will be made on Tuesday, November 26th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

Good luck!

  1. I adore Hallmark items. This books looks so awesome as well! Just went there this past weekend and got a few cute Keepsake ornaments. Those are the best, especially the Santa themed ones. Thanks for the opportunity for this great prize! 🙂

  2. I like all the seasonal gifts/gift ideas at Hallmark! This book would be so nice to have! Thanks for the chance to win it.

    Cheers. Dreena

  3. Hey Kate! I've still been following along, just haven't had a chance to weigh in for a while! My little ones would love this, I'm sure.
    P.s. – laser eye surgery was the best thing I ever did…about 15 years ago. Have you gone yet?

  4. Love following your blog. My daughters would love this book. Both love to be read too. Last year my xmas countdown was that my daughter each night got to open a new wrapped book
    It built her book collection and we had so much fun at story time. Take care Kate

  5. I get my daughter an ornament from Hallmark every Christmas for her stocking. I'm carrying on the tradition from my parents who've been getting me angel ornament every Christmas for over 25 years.
