Advent Activity Calendar 2012

Filed under: Kids,Uncategorized — by Alison @ 8:39 pm

We started Andrea’s 25 Days of Christmas last year. It seems even more in need this year, with the non-Christmas weather in Seattle and family far away.

First, we needed a place for our activities to be housed. E and I painted a Christmas tree.


Then she cut out various festive shapes, with cookie cutters as stencils. We all brainstormed ideas, and I wrote them on the back of our ornaments. I numbered each of the items, and sorted out a few scheduling conflicts. H helped me tape up the ornaments, and tomorrow they get to pick the first one.


These are the activities we’ve chosen:

  1. Visit Santa
  2. Write a letter to Santa
  3. Have hot chocolate and a Christmas treat
  4. Put up Snowman
  5. Shopping for our Christmas charities
  6. Make paper snowflakes
  7. Visit Candy Cane Lane
  8. Watch a Christmas movie
  9. Visit Leavenworth’s Christmas village
  10. Make a Christmas ornament
  11. E’s 7th Birthday
  12. Christmas dance party
  13. Snowman craft
  14. Build a gingerbread house
  15. Christmas Boats or Wildlights at the Zoo
  16. See the Seattle Centre Christmas Village
  17. Bake cookies
  18. Make a Christmas card
