In order to be this organised I had our calendar open and had to first put the dates and day on the Advent Calendar template. This took me sooo much longer than I wantd but in the end it is organised.
As I am a christian and I still want our children to know the true meaning of christmas, we wil be following the christmas story and Jesse Tree throughout Advent. While browsing for Advent ideas I came across another blogger who I have added to my list: www.beafunmum.com has some awesome ides and I expecially loved her Christmas story activities. Open the following link http://beafunmum.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Advent-calendar.pdf to see her ready to go activities. As a busy mum, I do not see the point of reinventing the wheel unless you really want to. I could have gone with a ready to go Advent Calendar but the time spent with Gabbylocks, while darling hubby coaxed Rogey Bear through dinner, was worth it.
I have attached some photos of our special time.
Lots of smiles
