Our Advent Calendar

I really like the advent we are doing this year! Its cute, kid friendly, and Lu loves it *thats what matters*
 I made "24" snowmen, completed with fabric scarves (PERFECT for those scraps you dont want to throw out and have on hand!), and a little black hat.

Underneath the hat is where the "activity" for the day is! Lu loves it, she has been going over there to see under the hat all day :) I wish I would have lifted a hat and took a pic but I forgot!

Our Calendar is simple this year mostly because we are still adjusting to out "bigger" family.
  • Some of the Activities are:
  • Decorate Tree
  • Movie night
  • Read a Christmas story
  • Sing a song together
  • Dance around the house
  • Go to Steak n Shake for a shake
  • make an ornament
  • do a craft
  • paint
  • playdate w/ a friend
  • bake
  • walk the neighborhood looking for Christmas lights
  • Drive around town to see the lights
ect ect ... you get my drift right? Simple yet fun! I love having an advent keeps you busy while waiting for Christmas, and it also keep me accountable to do things everyday with Lu no matter how busy I get! I think I should make one every month :)
Check out our advent from last year here

Many more Christmas projects coming this week, I've been crafting away during Tierney's naptime :)
