Christmas is right around the corner, and we start planning early. It’s my favorite holiday of the year, and every year I try to do something different to make it special. I want my sons to find Christmas as magical as I do, so I created a printable Advent Activity Calendar of fun activities for the 25 days of Christmas count-down to make every day with them memorable.
Make the holidays magical
There is something about winter’s shorter days and colder weather that makes you want to just cuddle up indoors and spend the evenings doing fun things with family and friends. I created an Advent Activity Calendar printable to offer 25 idea for ways to spend that time!
How about making something for the teacher?
Or watching fun Christmas movies together? My favorite is “It’s a Wonderful Life” ♥︎
How about hosting a dance party with your kids and their friends, or learning about how Christmas is celebrated around the world?
There is so much to do! And when each day has its own focus, you really can do so much, and not miss a single fun moment, so I’m sharing my Advent Activity Calendar Printable with you so you can make your own wonderful memories as a family.
Family time together
I love spending time with my sons, and I mean real quality time, where I’m doing something with them (and not just next to them), and listening to them. I love to watch how they joke around while they bake, or come up with silly version of favorite games during game night.
It’s also my chance to relax and just appreciate another year passing that I’m lucky enough to be with them, and have so much to look back on that I am grateful for.
I picked up the new International Delight creamer flavor Salted Caramel Mocha and I really love it. I enjoy it while we bake, make crafts, or tell stories. It’s seasonal, so when I finally find the holiday flavors of International Delight coffee creamers in a store, I snatch up as many as I can!
Other flavors available this time of year in addition to International Delight’s Salted Caramel Mocha are Chocolate Hazelnut, Frosted Sugar Cookie, and White Chocolate Raspberry.
Counting down the days
It’s time to take our days slower, enjoy each moment more, and create memories and traditions. Happy Holidays!
