Here are some of the things we’ll be doing —
* Visiting Santa
* Baking treats (with new aprons)
* Fancy hot cocoa night
* Watching a Christmas movie under a fort
* Chinese take out (with new kids chopsticks)
* Riding the train downtown to see the holiday decorations
* Watching it snow (an event at our local outdoor mall)
Between counting down the days till the birth of Jesus through our Advent Chain and being intentional with our time through this simple 12 Days of Christmas Kit, our holiday season already feels more merry and bright!
I thought you might like to make one for your family too, so I made the 12 Days of Christmas Kit as a free printable you can download. The kit includes the numbers for each envelope and 12 notecards. Just add your activities to each card and tuck them into envelopes or craft bags.
Merry Christmas friends!
