Advent Ideas

I'm preparing for the upcoming advent calendar season. Each year we (I) like to fill the advent calendar with fun activities for the family. I have a few small items that go into the calendar (lip gloss, money, candy, ornaments, etc.) along with service activities and fun things to do. Here are a few things on our list this year:

  • Decorate Christmas cookies
  • Drive around and look at the lights
  • Watch Elf together as a family
  • Play a game together
  • Paint your toenails Christmas colors
  • Make Christmas ornaments
  • Send cards to recovering soldiers
  • Make a snow globe
  • Decorate a gingerbread house
  • Perform a random act of kindness
  • Hot Chocolate Bar & Doughnuts 
  • Bake a treat for a neighbor
  • Make Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Do some Christmas Mad Libs
  • Volunteer

Years ago, my sister-in-law got us this super cute personalized Advent Calendar from Pottery barn. We love it! 

These are some current versions that are cute:
