Advent Calendar Activities.

Remember last year when I made this advent calendar? I know I'm a couple of days late here, but this year Ryan suggested that we add a fun family activity to each stocking along with our traditional piece of candy. Luckily, there have been a few great posts out there regarding this very thing.

I printed the chosen activities on these labels found here. Then I stuck the labels to some paper scraps. I was able to incorporate activities that are more involved for the weekends and simple activities like "drink spiced cider" on a day that I knew would be a bit busier. I also added activities that were already on our calendar like parties, and Easton's choir concert.

Here is our list:
-Make hot chocolate + read your favorite Christmas book
-Go visit the reindeer while they're in town
-Make a gingerbread house
-Watch the First Presidency Christmas Devotional
-Wrap the gifts you've made for your siblings
-Salvation Army food box
-Write someone a letter telling them how special they are to you
-Make a popcorn garland
-Ward Christmas Party
-Deliver neighbor gifts
-Visit great grandma
-Bake cookies + deliver them to friends
-Sing Christmas songs
-Drink spiced cider
-Attend Easton's holiday choir concert
-Hang mistletoe
-Progressive dinner with cousins
-Take a drive to see some Christmas lights
-Annual Family Christmas dinner
-Family testimony meeting by the fire
-Watch "It's a Wonderful Life"
-Read the Christmas story from The Bible + The Book of Mormon

Oh, and I forgot to tell you yesterday, Happy December!

  10. Oh I am so glad I read this post! My printer was being so funky printing borders on labels and I wanted red bordered labels for my cards. These are PERFECT. I love your advent calendar, did you use a typewriter on the labels? SUCH a cute idea I'm definitely doing next year.
