The Christmas season is upon us and it is time to start thinking about the plans with your family. One of my all time favorite traditions is the Advent calendar. We started this when my older boys were 1 and 2 years old. Every morning they would run down the stairs straight for the Advent to see what treasure and fun activity was in store for them that day. You can just see the magic of the season come to life in their eyes.
Are you sold on the idea, yet? Whether you are new to this whole idea or you just want to jazz up your current Advent calendar then you are in the right spot. Listed below are several options for you to choose from. It can be simple or elaborate. You get to decide what works with your family. Also included are over 60 daily Advent activities.
Plan a Halloween dinner that will make their skin crawl. This year we did just that with a spider theme. Every year we strive to have a themed dinner with the family either on or around Halloween night. It can be simple or extravagant. The point is to have a little fun and create memories with your kids. Like the time I tried to create an spooky setting by using a fog machine indoors. In case you didn’t know, a fog machine will set off the fire alarms in your house. And now you know. All that frantically running around to turn off the alarms lead to the kids being upset and not wanting to eat. That’s a memory that they may not forget.
So this sounds fun and you would like to do it for your next Halloween but you want a few ideas to get you started. Here are a few creepy crawly ideas to help you plan.
