Advent Activities Calendar

Advent Activities Calendar

Woohoo! I feel like I can finally unleash all the Christmas fun I have been holding back now that it is┬áDecember (well it will be tomorrow). Technically, my husband will still give me a look. You see when I was pregnant with J we decided not to celebrate Christmas or do anything Christmassy until after his December birthday. That went straight out of the window after the first year because J carries the Christmas loving gene and wants to celebrate all things festive as early as… well August. Yes, August is when my boy started singing Christmas songs to himself! Anyway… to get my Christmas fix I have created a list of Advent activities, one for each day to count down to Christmas and ensure that I get all the festive fun done. I hope that you love my Advent Activities Calendar and can use it to inspire your own Christmas ideas.
