The Prudent Pantry shares how to make a Christmas Book Advent Calendar. Teaching Good Eaters shares how they are incorporating the Christmas Book Basket Advent Calendar idea in their home.
We’re doing our own variation of this idea this year. I’ll be sharing more about that sometime in the next week or so, along with some of our family’s favorite Christmas books.
Confessions of a Homeschooler shows you how to make Advent Activity Ornaments. Her post includes free printables and a list of activity ideas.
We’re also doing a variation of this: we made a list of all the activities we wanted to do this Christmas season (each family member got to pick 3-4) and then we assigned each activity to a day in December. We may not end up doing every single thing on the list, but having it all planned out ahead of time is definitely going to guarantee that we do a number of fun, meaningful, and memorable family activities this Christmas.
Looking for a really simple Advent Calendar idea? Jessica shows you how to make your own Advent Calendars from packs of gum.
