Advent Activity Calendar

advent-activity-cards

This year we have decided to switch up previous chocolate, Lego or Playmobil advent calendars and trade them in for an advent calendar that we have all had a hand in making.

Our first year that everybody has been in school.  It has been a busy year – settling into school – and embracing our new city!    We have made a list of all the activities we want to do together.  Christmas should be  about spending time together, not rushing around.  There are more than 25 activities on our list.  We might not get through them all and we will probably do some more than once.

 Here is our list! We have concentrated on the free or minimal money events in Perth.Print out the PDF calendar and cards and share our journey.    We always add events to a calendar, I think it a good way to show kids time management skills.  There are always a couple of days that there are just too many activities and so that requires negotiation and ….patience.    What activities do you do?  Share your Christmas activities with the hash tag #tinystepsmakebigstrides.
