Hoppin’ Around the Christmas Tree!

As she fills in more of her advent calendar, Miffy’s excitement for Christmas grows and grows! One of her favorite parts of the holiday season is picking out the perfect tree and decorating it. You can watch Miffy search far and wide for the best tree on the episode Miffy and the Three Christmas Trees. To celebrate when the tree is finally up and decorated in her living room, Miffy and her family love to play a special Christmas tree bowling game. You can play too using the directions below!
