I like this idea. You could use your existing advent calendar and put an activity in the alternate days and a small gift in the others.
Last year, in a vain attempt to be more exciting than a Lego Advent Calendar, I made up a calendar of “Things We Can Do Together”.
I resent feeling obliged to spend money on pointless bits of crap to put in an Advent Calendar, and there are lots of cool things to do, and things that need making in the run up to Christmas, so this is what we are doing this year. Feel free to borrow any of the ideas 🙂
1) Write a letter to Father Christmas-you can find some templates online or just use plain paper and pretty it up in ‘some kind of imaginative festive way’
2) Have a toy sort out and take some to a charity shop. This may or may not happen. I like the idea of it, but it is possibly a little mean and is almost inevitably going to end…
