We are starting our Advent calendar on Monday. As always we will be having candy and a verse for each day, but this year we are also doing something extra special. I got the idea from a couple of different sites.
I typed up one special activity for each day leading up to Christmas, and will put them in with the verses. Here is the list I came up with:
Make paper snowflakes
Read Christmas stories
Make paper nativity
Play Board games
Donate a toy to charity
Go see Christmas lights at the coast
Make gingerbread men
Watch Charlie brown Christmas
Go to festival of lights
Make Christmas cards
Drink hot chocolate and watch Christmas movie
Bake cookies and share
Go to timber truck light parade
Hand out candy canes
Drive around and look at lights
Sing Christmas carols and dance like crazy
Make ornaments
Make fudge
Donate to food bank
Go to the wild lights
Visit a nursing home
Make gingerbread houses
Star gaze, read Christmas story in Luke
Build a fort

I think it is going to be really fun. In case you want to do this also and don't have an advent calendar here is a link to a craft one your kids can make
And here is a link for verses you can use
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
