Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year! Now that my little man is getting older, it’s getting more and more fun. For the past few years, I’ve done an Advent calendar for us as a family to serve together, have intentional time together, and to help teach my little man what Christmas is really all about!
Here are some of the activities we’ll be doing this Advent season–what are some of the traditions you and your family have? I’d love to hear about them!
Watch a Christmas movie
Breakfast with Santa
Swim party (when we’ll be in a hotel out of town)
Make a leaf wreath
Make Christmas cards and mail them to our cousins
Make treats and deliver them to our neighbors
Choose some toys to donate
Deliver food to a food bank ministry
Have cookies and cocoa at our church’s Christmas service
Have breakfast for dinner
Sing Christmas carols to our grandparents (if he’ll cooperate!)
Drive around and look at Christmas lights
Read the Christmas story together
Do a Christmas puzzle
Color a Christmas coloring page
This isn’t the full list, but it’s a great start! What are your Advent activity plans?
