I saw a really fun idea in the Family Fun magazine. I have an activity planned for the 24 days before Christmas. Every afternoon Sophie gets to find a new slip of paper in the advent calendar. So far it has been a lot of fun!
Day 1: Write our Letters to Santa
Sophie's Letter to Santa
Laynies Letter to Santa She had to put it in the mail right away! The next day Sophie was so excited to get a letter back from Santa. She couldn't believe that he wrote her back so fast!
Day 2: Read a Christmas Story. We read Polar Express
Day 3: Make snowflakes. The girls love to color and to use scissors. Making snowflakes out of coffee filters is perfect for that.
