Last week wasn't a very busy one as far as Christmas activities go. Here's what we found in our advent calendar last week.
December 6-Make Christmas crayons
We are making these to give away as treats in school and to kids at Christmas parties.
December 7-Download a new book to read
We downloaded The Polar Express on my Nook and read it together. I love my Nook and it's great for kids who want to sit and read quietly alone. Reading together as a family? It's not so great. It really takes away from the whole experience. Lesson learned. Nothing compares to a book with big, beautiful pictures!
December8-Watch Christmas specials on TV
December 9-Read 2 Chapters of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
December 10-Decorate Grandma and Grandpa's Christmas tree
I took the day to do a little Christmas shopping with my mom and aunt. Steve took the girls to his mom and dad's to put up and decorate their Christmas tree.
December 11-Make Christmas Ornaments
I have never made salt clay ornaments before. Some of them turned out OK. Some of them should probably be done over. We had to save the decorating for another day, though.
How are your Christmas preparations coming?
