Wooden Advent Calendar

This year i bought a lovely wooden advent calendar from Next, with little drawers for each day of advent. Today (yes, im a day late) i filled each drawer with a slip of paper which has our activity for that day written on it. Ive planned our activities around things we have on already and busy days (like the days Caleb's in nursery) have less time consuming activities.

3. Get the Christmas trees up and start decorating
4. Continue decorating the trees and the house
5. Write and post a letter to Santa

7. Make Christmas cards
8. Make paper chains to decorate bedrooms
9. Elf ourselves
10. Christmas meal at a restaurant
11. Go to a party and watch Elf with mummy and daddy
12. Make Christmas decorations
13. Watch Santa dvd
14. Make paper snowflakes for windows
15. Have a Christmas picnic
16. Christmas party and Santa visit at nursery

You are far more organized than I ever was when my boys were young. Sounds like you will have a busy month!
