Advent.


We have had a GREAT advent season this year. 

This is the second year that we have done activities each day and we all have LOVED it every day. 

Here are the different activities we did every day this past month:

    -Go on a Christmas hayride

      -make a gingerbread house



      -Do something nice for someone

      -sing carols

      -go out and look at Christmas lights

      -open one gift (Christmas eve)

      -Go out for a special breakfast


      -Paint a Christmas picture



    -color a Christmas picture

    -build a snowman (we couldn't do this because we had no snow, so we had a movie night instead- Veggietales, The Little Drummer Boy)

    -bake a birthday cake for baby Jesus

    -make a Christmas decoration

    -do a Christmas craft


    -make/buy special ornaments


    -Go sledding (we couldn't do this one either, but we did a different activity instead).

    -make paper snowflakes



    -have hot chocolate and candy canes

    -go pick out gifts for siblings

    -go to the library and get Christmas books

    -bake Christmas cookies

    -Charlie Brown movie night with "Christmas" ice cream


    -make cards for our mailman, Warren

    -bake cookies and bring them to a neighbor

    -make Christmas cards for friends



     I am already feeling a little sad that Advent is just about over because I have been loving doing these little activities with the kids every day!
