Advent-ful Ideas: Part 2

Dec 2, 2011

Recently, I shared a small sampling of advent calendar projects from around the web. It didn't take long to figure out which one I would make, but I did need a little inspiration for 24 days worth of activities.

With all of the fun ideas to choose from, I was finally able to make my own list. Although, there were lots more things that I liked but couldn't fit in. Maybe next year. There are specific activities planned for Papa Bear's days off, but many of the other ones can be moved around as necessary because I used sticky notes on the back of the tags.

Here is our advent line-up for this year:
  1. Make the first batch of hot cocoa for the season - Done!
  2. Make paper snowflakes
  3. Pop popcorn & watch Polar Express
  4. Put up Christmas tree & outside lights
