Are you still short of activities for the Advent Calendar? How to decide what to do? Well, the first thing would be to see what we want to achieve with the Advent Calendar and then see what is available in your town.
Advent is a time of preparation for Christmas. Religious people could focus their activities in this regard. It also is a fun time, and is the ideal time to do activities that you can only do at Christmas.
My calendar is intended to educate my children and entertain them at the same time. I want to teach them the true meaning of Christmas, so among my activities I included buying and wrapping toys for poor children, choose which toys they want to donate, read the story of the birth of Jesus, and bake a birthday cake for Jesus.
Among the fun activities that also help them develop skills, I included: making cookies (we made on Saturday and they were delicious!), Make cards for grandparents; make bows for the tree and Christmas coloring pages (which include nativity scenes).
Just for fun activities include going to see performances of carols, go see lights and decorations in the malls.
