    Each year My three boys and I make an advent calendar with a different Christmas themed activity for each day. We try to include a mix of family activities such as attending carols by candlelight, craft activities like making cards or Christmas decorations, and community activities like donating toys to a charity. The boys really look forward to opening there advent each day and I can even fit in a few learning activities like writing a letter to Santa!
