Advent Activities

I know that Thanksgiving is not even here yet, but with Advent beginning in two weeks, I had to plan my daily activities now. Every day from Dec 1st until the 25th, I have something planned to do with the family. Here is a list of some of the things that we have picked out to do.

  1. Decorate the tree
  2. Put up the Creche and read the Christmas Story
  3. Watch The Nativity Story movie
  4. Make cookies for neighbors and family
  5. Make ornaments for family
  6. Make seed ornaments for the birds
  7. Read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
  8. Read a devotion daily from the Advent devotion book
  9. Read a daily Bible passage about the birth of Christ
  10. Attend the Christmas Parade (Dec 7th)
  11. Drive around and look at the lights while listening to Christmas music
  12. Watch Christmas movies
  13. Decorate the house with lights
  14. Send out Christmas cards
  15. Make a gingerbread house
  16. Make a snowman (if there is snow)
  17. Make popcorn and cranberry garland for the birds
  18. Make paper snowflakes
  19. Make homemade hot chocolate
  20. Open one gift on Christmas Eve
  21. Make cards for the military
  22. Donate a new toy for Toys For Tots
  23. Pack a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child
  24. Donate good used toys and outgrown clothes to the local thrift store
  25. See a live Nativity (new for us this year)

This is just what we have thought of right now. We may add or take activities away. Also a few of the activities will be repeated, like watching a Christmas movie. We have a nice collection of Christmas movies to watch that I keep adding to every year.

What activities do you like to do every Christmas season?
