Happy December 1st. The start of the Christmas silly season.
This year I am ready because I have made my Advent Calendar. I bought it with the intention of making it for Christmas 2009, but then I ran out of time. This year, I was a little more organised!
I am now trying to think of enough fun projects to fill each pocket.
Easy, family friendly activities for each day. A picnic by the creek, a gingerbread house kit, the Christmas service at the local Church, the community Christmas party in a neighbouring wool shed complete with a Santa visit... I need to think of a few more!
This will be the first year I have had an Advent Calendar, I hope it will become a new tradition that the children will enjoy.
