Christmas is my favorite holiday!
I love all the festivities, lights, and good feelings, but I have never tried to do an advent calendar with treats and activities. That always sounded like way too much work for me even though it sounded like fun. This year I thought of all the things we would be doing anyways and realized I could put something together. For me, however, I would need to simplify the process! Here is what I came up with for our December Activities:
Just a simple gift bag with a paper snowflake paper clipped to it. The backs of the snowflakes are numbered for each day until Christmas. Each morning the kids pull out a piece of paper with the day’s activity on it. This allows for the next day’s activity to be decided the night before … I need this flexibility.
Most activities will be simple. For instance, today our activity is “Go to the library and read a Christmas book”. It just so happens that I found out that today our library would be having a harpist! 🙂
