Christmas Countdown Calendar

This year I am determined to enjoy Christmas, I am usually quite the bahhumbug. But it has become much better with kids, they make it so much more exciting. Last year I was looking at this blog and thought her advent calendar/christmas countdown calendar. Last year I bought one after Christmas and here are some of my ideas for the activities for the different days. What do you think?

  • Put up and decorate the Christmas Tree
  • Go for a walk at night and look at all the lights
  • Go to McDonald's for dinner
  • Make cookies and decorate them
  • Santa needs some room for your new toys. Donate 5 toys to charity
  • Read a Christmas story
  • Decorate a gingerbread house
  • Make a glitter shape
  • Make a fort
  • Color a Christmas picture
  • Buy food for the food bank
  • Make paper snowflakes
  • Have an indoor picnic
  • Have hot chocolate with all the fixings
  • Write letters to Santa Claus
  • Use puppets to tell bedtime story
  • Have breakfast for dinner
  • Make decorations for the tree
  • Have a camp out around the Christmas tree
  • Wrap a toy and take it to a charity Christmas tree
  • Go out for dessert
  • Dance like crazy to music
  • Watch a Christmas movie with popcorn
Till Tomorrow
