Advent Activities

I decided (because we don't need a reason to eat sweets in this house) to go with an all activities advent calendar, so just in case you're curious, or want some ideas for what to do, here's what we're up to this month:

  1. Watch "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown" with Dad.
  2. Read Christmas books
  3. Make a Handprint Christmas Tree
  4. Rae's birthday
  5. Attend a Nativity/Music event at Church
  6. Phineas & Ferb Holiday Special.
  7. Choir concert at the high school where WBH teaches
  8. Make Ornaments
  9. Make Soap Snowmen
  10. Decorate for Church Party
  11. Church Party
  12. Imagination Movers Concert
  13. Set up our Nativity while reading the Christmas Story - have Stinky unwrap each piece as we go
  14. Make Treats
  15. Caroling with the youth at church
  16. Deliver Treats to Daddy's Work for secretaries and principals.
  17. To Be Determined - probably something hands-on.
  18. Preschool Christmas Party
  19. Take Treats to the Firestation and Library (they share a building around here).
  20. Drive around and look at lights
  21. Watch Polar Express
  22. Stinky's Birthday! - Special Breakfast in the works for him that day.
  23. Make bird feeders and read The Animal's Christmas Carol. Try not to cry (whoops, that's just for Rae!)
  24. Christmas Eve Dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
