Earlier last month I had posted a picture of this advent calendar I had found on Pinterest and said I wanted to make it for my family this year. I finished it yesterday just by the skin of my teeth.
Each day is a pocket with a slip that contains a Christmas related activity for the family to do that night.
I will have the kids pick in the morning so they can have something to look forward to and be excited about while they are at school. Something merry each night:)
Some of the pockets contain things that have to be done anyway, like the school program or my husband's work party. The other activities include various things such as: stringing popcorn, singing carols, making hot chocolate, driving to look at lights, and/or putting on a play. This is really going to be a great thing to pull us all together in the evenings.
Last night we got to make paper advent chains and tonight we get to read a Christmas story together.
Tomorrow's slip says we get to string popcorn. That should be a ton of fun:)
Oh, how the season is upon us. The magical merry things Christmas brings.
Have a great day.
