Advent Activities

Here is my list of 24 Advent activities for this year. It sure does add a lot of hype and build up to Christmas day. Here is my list in no particular order (I just pick the one that suits what I'm up for that day).

1- Christmas jammies
2- Decorate little Christmas trees (Target has little trees for $2.50 and mini ornaments). I think Ike will really love having a tree in his room.
3- Make paper snowflakes
4- Christmas books
5- Hang candy canes on the Christmas tree
6-8 We are doing small gifts every Sunday
9- Make Christmas ornament
10- Watch the Grinch
11- Jammie ride (these are WAY more fun when you pick up your ice cream and go to Grandma's house)
12- Family game night
13- Movie date w/Daddy
14- Bubble bath in the garden tub w/Christmas music (I don't know why, but these are a BIG hit)
15- Hot chocolate for breakfast
16- Visit the reindeer
17- Bake and decorate Christmas cookies
18- Deliver cookies to Grandma and Papa
19- Make Christmas cards
20- Decorate the dinner table
21- Extra bedtime story
22- Eat a candy cane off the tree
23- Cinnamon rolls for breakfast
24- Read the Christmas story
