In my first post on Advent I mentioned what we would be doing for everyday as Christmas draws nearer and nearer…
- A Joke A Day.
- 24 day board or card game challenge.
- I found a new Jesse Tree Resource.
- A visit to the Christmas Carol Advent Devotional.
- Some of our Christmas Preparation: make gifts, cards or gift wrap.
- A Craft from Bella Dia of the Crafty Crow.
- Wild Card Fun:
- friends to play
- an outing
- a Christmas Crafty Project
- a cooking adventure
- A new skill
- a Movie
- online fun – audible stories or Christmas games
