This year we are doing an Advent Book Calendar with the kids. Its really simple, 24 Christmas Books, all wrapped up and marked for each day leading up until Christmas. This way, we will be reading a Christmas story a night together as a family!
We actually only own 6 Christmas books, but Ive been trawling the internet and have picked up a bunch of books for very little, plus Ive got some from our library (4 weeks loan time) so its not as an expensive an activity as it may at first seem… and we will build the collection up over the next few years. I’m hoping it will become a family tradition! Of course we still have the chocolate laden version as well- unfortunately the concept of one a day (after dinner) for 24 days is lost on a two and a half year old… he ate four this morning before I realised what he was up to!!!
