Advent Activity Calendar

When I finish work every Friday lunchtime I have great intentions about the craft and play activities I can do with The Boy for the forthcoming four days until I return to work, yet by Wednesday I have failed miserably!

However, tomorrow the festive season starts and I am buggered damned if I am missing out on the opportunity to do great activities with The Boy each day, even more so since I saw this post on Domestic Goddesque the other day. So in pure 'borrowing' style, I have compiled a planner of Advent Activities for us to complete each day which hopefully should see us embrace the seasonal cheer.

What Christmas activities do you have planned?

    Very ambitious but great idea. I would love to make something the same but our move will prevent me doing much like his now.
    Good luck though x

    There are some great crafts here. Some of these sound a bit beyond my skill level! I do hope you will be blogging the things you have made? with pictures!

    I may have to copy your Pot Pourri idea (sorry / thanks!) – be good to get some nice Christmassy smells on the go! Someone blogged about drying out orange slices the other day – that'd go great in pot pourri! 🙂 xx

      The sliced oranges is what made me think of Christmas pot pourri, got some other ideas going on in my head too! I'll be blogging some or I'll Instagram the rest.

    Love this idea! I had to throw in some 'easier' ones with some I might be able to achieve more than one in a day- but challenge accepted!

    Some lovely ideas there. I used to be very good at doing Christmas crafts with them but this past few years it has been hectic in December, as they are older they are in more and more things. I will be looking forward to seeing your creations.

    I'm impressed! I've got several things in mind and I did think about doing something like this but I worried that he would miss doing stuff after Christmas if it was too obviously structured – and I thought I may lose the will to live with too much crafting! Am loving all your photos though, even if I still have that tune in my head!
