Preparing for Christmas

December 4, 2007

Things are in full swing here. We have begun our preparations for Christmas and are enjoying it to the fullest.

We’ve already had a gingerbread party and are reaping the benefits. The kids are really good to choose three pieces of candy each and then they sit and stare at it until the next time they’re allowed to eat from it. (Okay, that’s extreme–but I was surprised by how long they can just sit by it and dream. I think they must be waiting for whoever lives inside to come out and invite them in for a visit!)

These are our Advent bags. I got the idea from Kids Craft Weekly. Each bag has a little slip of paper in it with something fun to do printed on it. We are opening one each day until Christmas. Some of the activities are an easy craft to make, or treat to bake. One night we are going to drive around and drink hot chocolate and look at Christmas lights. Another day we will make a pine cone bird feeder. Other activities include watching a Christmas movie, making a tent in the living room and reading books, making an ornament…the list goes on. So far, it’s been a fun way to count down the days until Christmas.

More to come on our Advent activities.
