Advent Activities

December is fast racing past on route to the big day so I thought we'd do a little catch up of some of the things that I've been doing with the children on our Advent route so far:

  • made Christmas cake
  • made Christmas pudding
  • made Christmas cards
  • posted Christmas cards
  • went to Christmas market at St Enoch Square in Glasgow.
  • wrapped and posted Christmas parcels to far-flung family
  • put up and decorated the Christmas tree
  • made mince pies
  • went to the Scout District Carol Service
  • went to the Christmas Theatre production for children (3-6) at the local theatre ("The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot" - I think they got the target audience a little wrong, but...)
  • made cakes for the Pre-school Christmas party
  • made snow flake decorations
  • some Christmas colouring and activities (free from the library)
  • Christmas stories (from the nativity story to "Father Christmas Needs a Wee")
  • went to Winter Wonderland pre-school activity session at Dundee Science Centre
Still a few more things to squeeze in before the big day, but we are still mostly anchored to the ground, and rather than hindering me in Christmas preparations, I've enjoyed involving the children.
