Welcome to the holiday sh*t show in our house known as Advent Activities! Actually that’s not fair. It was a total SS when the girls were small, but now that LB and Little R are 8 and 6 I don’t have to stop their hands from going INTO the mixer, nor do I have to constantly remind them that glue is not a food group. I can truly enjoy my girls, the day’s activity and the holiday.
Here is a listing of this year’s activities, starting with Day 1. Maybe you want to add a little something to your holiday season this year? Start here. Cheers!
