Can you believe Christmas is 2 weeks away! We always try to do a Christmas Advent countdown, sometimes with chocolate and sometimes with activities! Last year I shared our 12 days til Christmas Advent calendar here: http://cleverpinkpirate.com/2012/12/12/12-days-of-christmas-advent/
This year we are back with a brand new activity advent! This time I did a 24 day one because I involved it in our Disney Reveal for our trip to Disneyland.
First I created the Advent bags out of large paper lunch bags from Walmart and Washi tape. Then I utilized my Silhouette machine to cut out numbers 1-24.
Here are a few examples of what I included in our calendar.
Day 3: This is the day we revealed to the kids that we were going to Disneyland! I put these cookies in the bag
It came with a note that said:
“Pack your bags
We are on our way
After school gets out
Day 4: This was the Disneyland Gift Card reveal the morning at the hotel that said “Let’s have some fun”
I purchased these at the Disney Store, no fees and the kids can use them all over the park including at the little treat stands!
Day 5: This bag included fun Disney candy!
Day 8: The activity was driving around looking at Christmas Lights except we also did a scavenger hunt! Find our Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt list here: http://bit.ly/ChristmasLightScavengerHunt
Other Days included: An ornament for each child for the tree, candy canes & chocolate! I also included a few days where we will pay it forward with random acts of kindness. I also used a lot of ideas from the activity advent from the link above!
