So I’ve taken the advent calendar one step further. I’ve decide to include a children’s christmas craft activity everyday for the whole family to participate in. I want our children to enjoy preparing for this special time of the year, but I also want them to think of others less fortunate than themselves so I have added in some activities to make sure this happens.

My families 24 days pre-Christmas look like this

1 – put up the Christmas tree

2 – put up Christmas lights outside

3 – have a candle lit bubble bath

4 – write a list of 10 things you are thankful for

5 – write letters to Santa

6 – each family member buy a Christmas decoration

7 – play Christmas songs to celebrate the end of school

8 – write a family Christmas story. Write one line then the next person writes the next line

9 – have a fancy dress dinner party

10 – buy a gift for a child on the Target Christmas tree

11 – make a magazine Christmas tree

12 – have a family wii night

13 – make a friendship bracelet for someone special

14 – pick 2 toys you no longer need that you can give to less fortunate children for Christmas

15 – make Christmas cards for the family

16 – go driving around looking at Christmas lights

17 – make Christmas snow flakes

18 – Christmas baking

19 – hot chocolate and Christmas movie night

20 – Get toe nails painted for Christmas

21 – build Christmas tree for our holiday house

22 – walk along beach with torches

23 – Christmas snacks by the pool

24 – get food and drinks organised for Santa and the reindeers


I hope you enjoy not only creating your list of children’s christmas crafts but also enjoy completing the list. ┬áTicking off each of these activities is sure to generate some great quality family time.
