The lead up to Christmas

We had two advent calendars this year. One had a smartie each everyday. The other had a note each day and each day the note had a new task/activity/outing/treat that was christmas related. From singing Christmas carols, to making Christmas cards, to going to see Santa  there was plenty to do!

This was really for the benefit of my 4.5yr old and she loved it!
Thought I would share some pics of some of the activities :)

It was a lovely way to countdown to Christmas and something we will definitely do again next year!
