Christmas advent activities
One of my first advent printables- I have 4 pages of fun ideas of things you can do this Christmas season!
Since there are more than 24, you can go through them all and decide which ones you want to include in your December plans! The fun part is that you can change it up year after year!
It might not snow where you are, OR you can adapt it to do white playdough to make a snowman! So just pull out the ones that speak to you!
I originally bought 24 Manila envelopes. Then reality hit me what a time suck that would be so I opted for one envelope and then loads of cards to put in it!!! I can pick one and put it in the envelope and put it somewhere in my house for the kids to find, or put all the advent ideas and let kids draw them out day by day!
I got them printed and cut out.
and glued them to some colored cardstock.
You can opt to laminate them so you can reuse these year after year! I Laminate everything I can! I got this Scotch Laminator for Christmas a few years ago and I love it!
Did you know that you can even laminate the envelope?
Just take an exacto knife and slice the opening
Christmas MOVIE advent
I compiled 4 pages of Christmas movies! It was actually a lot harder than I thought! I have about 15 Christmas movies that are my favorite, but I asked on Facebook and went off of the answers there so hopefully your favorite made the cut! If not, just pencil it in!
I didn’t add any hallmark Christmas Movies- only because when I started looking at them, I realized there are 100s!
Just cut these apart and sort! Some you might not like, some you might not consider Christmas movies (I had to include Die Hard and Gremlins for my husband!), and some you might not have access to on streaming channels. So pick out your top favorites, roll them up, and place them in a jar! Grab one out every day!
