Advent Ideas

This year for our advent calendar I decided that I would do something a little more interesting than chocolate and lollies each day for the kids. So this is what I have decided on. Each day there will be a note telling the kids something to do that day for the lead up to Christmas. (I know some people already do this). I thought I would share some of the things on my list:

  • decorate the Christmas tree
  • write out Christmas cards
  • read a Christmas story
  • write letters to Santa
  • make a wooden reindeer
  • wrap teacher presents
  • trip to Brisbane to see the Myer window
  • make candy cane reindeers
  • visit the Christmas lights
  • make reindeer food
  • go to the movies
  • trip to the zoo
  • playdate with friends
  • make Christmas crackers
  • make paper chains
  • watch a Christmas DVD
  • bake gingerbread men
  • track Santa on the web

I am also going to put chocolates in a couple of the pockets to fill in gaps where I know the day will be busy with work etc.

Let's just hope it all works out OK!

Have a great Friday everyone, we will have our Embellish stall at the Petrie Twilight Markets this Friday night so stop by and say hello.
