Activity Advent

I created these fun little advent pocket holders two years ago...seriously.  I had never used them, but was definitely ready to this year.  R is finally old enough to have fun and get excited about doing fun stuff!  So, I sat down and looked out our calendar, and then planned out from there what we would do each night.

 I found the little brown bags at Hobby Lobby, & the white paper comes with them as well, and I just added the Christmas paper & numbers to the front (I can't find where the numbers are from, because it was two years ago...but if you find them, let me know!  ;))  (HERE are some similar...)
Here is a list of what our activities look like if you want to do a few of them yourself!  ;)  It's not a full list of 25 because we will be gone a few nights and won't be able to do stuff...but do what you can & make it fun & memorable!
  • North Pole Breakfast
  • Make hot chocolate & look at old Christmas cards on the blessing ring
  • Color Christmas themed picture print outs
