Our Activity Advent

Our Activity Advent | The Open Home

Although this is Blossom’s third Christmas this is actually the first year that she can really enjoy the anticipation of Christmas and understand the meaning of it.

We decided to use an activity advent calendar to help us savour the season, spread out the fun and ensure that the true meaning of the season did not get over shadowed.

We found our calendar on Amazon for a bargain price and then simply wrote the activities onto gift tags purchased from Paperchase, which can be used again year after year and even swapped around throughout the month if necessary!

So here’s what we did for our activity advent calendar.
