Activity Advent Calendar

For the past two or three years we’ve made an Activity Advent

For the past two or three years we’ve made an Activity Advent Calendar for the kids and we’ve all adored it!

Somehow the time has come for it to start already tomorrow!! Had great plans of doing up little envelopes and doing a pretty display.. but then life happened, and that didn’t!!

But that doesn’t matter! The kids won’t notice! It’s the excitement and the anticipation of what’s to come that matters to them!

So we’re sitting down tonight to write some out (didn’t get to print them out and am too tired to write them all out tonight!! ) and these are some of the ideas from the past few years (taken out all the ones that won’t be happening this year .. Christmas Concert, Nativity Play, Carol Service, etc.
