Did anyone one else get smacked in the face with December 1? Because insure did and because of it I was totally not prepared for the advent. Every year I make the kids an advent with treats and fun activities and phrases and quotes to reflect on what really makes Xmas...Christmas! My kids are honestly really grateful and never ask for much...and they have always looked forward to the countdown to Christmas more than the morning avalanche of gifts! For this reason I put a lot of effort into this! However this year with the late thanksgiving December 1 just popped up and I had to put together something quickly but still fantastic....I present to you the year of advent I almost ruined!
I started with a large ish piece of balsa wood ...it's light and splinter free...easy
Gather materials...white lunch sacks...goodies...little gifts...cute tags to write activities on...
Make the list of activities and number them in the order that will make the activity conducive to the day...kept the activities easier on the big kids busy days...
Place tag and treat on treat per kiddo in each bag...
Hot glue each bag on the balsa and and a little garland for fun...
I hung ours where the little chubby ones can't get to...but where we can all see...enjoy...and countdown...
Some of the activities included:
Random acts of kindness
Eat dinner in front of tree
Give flower to stranger
Sword fight with siblings
Whoppie cushion prank
Go see lights
Write a thank you to someone you love
Home alone hot cocoa party
And much more Xmas fun
