Tomorrow marks the first day of December! Wow... I really need to get on the ball and start Christmas shopping. Anyway, I am a total sucker for the holidays. The Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack runs on repeat in my house. Literally all day. For the entire month. (The construction workers probably think I'm insane.) This year I'm especially excited for Christmas because the boys are starting to understand the concept of Santa. To help build their anticipation and get them engaged in the holiday season, I've put together a bunch of fun activities in the form of an advent calendar. How cute is this Santa I picked up at Pottery Barn Kids?!
I made the tags with some cute craft paper, holiday duct tape, baker's twine and stickers.
24 age appropriate holiday things to do with the boys for the next month. I can't wait!!! A few things planned are...
Indoor Snowball Fight
Build a Christmas Fort with Blankets
Have a Picnic Dinner under the Christmas Tree
Make a Christmas Tree Ornament
Make Snowflake Cookies
Learn How to Ice Skate
Decorate a Gingerbread House
Wear Christmas PJs and Watch The Polar Express
Sure, the crafts I have planned will be an epic disaster and make a total mess but we'll have fun and that's what is important. I'll keep you posted on how things turn out. What are you guys most excited about this holiday season?!
