I love the holidays! As soon as December hits, I’m ready to have all kinds of fun activities with my kids. I’m sort of an advent hoarder. This year we have 4 going to keep the kids busy, and everyone happy. I’ve compiled 25 fun advent activities you can include in your countdown to Christmas.
December is the one month a year that we seem to make a celebration out of every day. Whether it’s staying home watching movies, or getting out and serving others – every day holds an adventure. Having a quick snack on hand is key to moving from school and homework into each days activity. For our activities outside the house, we like Entenmann’s® Little Bites® paired with some chocolate milk.
Turning chocolate milk boxes into a Santa was so simple too! Just wrap each box with red and black construction paper and secure with tape. The kids get so excited when these come out. They know we’re about to head out for our daily advent activity.
