We've enjoyed a full week of Advent activities, and the girls are having a BLAST!!! They LOVE taking turns to pull a number off our calendar...and then showing it to me to tell them what it says.
(I have been impressed how well they've taken turns...no issues whatsoever. And on a different note, I laugh to myself every morning...they can't read, so how do they know what it says? If I ever change my mind about the day's activity at the last minute, they'd never know!)
This week we...
* Put up the Christmas tree on Saturday
* Made Chex mix on Sunday
* Made a Christmas tree craft with our friends M&C on Monday
* Made cards for our friends on Tuesday
* Went shopping for the food pantry at one of the local churches on Wednesday
* Made homemade hot chocolate on Thursday
* Hosted our neighbor, "Grandma" June, for a holiday-themed snack on Friday
* Went out to breakfast as a family on Saturday
Our craft was a super-easy one, an extension of several other crafts we've made this year. Easy-peasy...the girls had fun...and they love having their artwork on display on the window. Win-win-win!
Some construction paper cut into a triangle, squares of multi-colored tissue paper, and my standby contact paper...viola!
B's tree is on the left, and A's is on the right. I love how different they are, too. :)
Our next craft will be an ornament of some sort, I think. For having almost-four-year olds, I just decided our Christmas tree doesn't look nearly "homemade" enough.
Fortunately we have 16 more days of Advent activities to go! Let the fun continue!
I'm linking up with Charlene at Adventures-in-Mommy-Land for "Hey, Mom! Look What I Did!" Check her out for so many great crafts and educational ideas! (Psst...she also has a great giveaway going on right now from Shabby Apple...such cute stuff!)
Hope you are enjoying this holiday season as much as we are. I've said this for years now, but this is the best year yet!
