On Monday, I shared the Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar Village I made for my nieces.
The tree is from Target a few years back. I picked it up after Christmas when it was on clearance. Dan spray painted the back and edge green for me. The little doors open and you can put a small item in each cubby.
When it came to filling the calendar, I decided to come up with a bunch of activities that were Christmas-y. I looked online for some ideas, but I found most, if not all, advent calendar activities were for children. Things like “Stay up past bedtime to watch a movie” or “Slumber party around the tree.”
So, much like I did a couple years ago, I came up with a bunch of more age appropriate activities like “Write your spouse a letter to give them on Christmas.” Of course, there are still some activities that are fun whether you’re 5 or 95 like watching “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Here’s a printable for you with some of the activities I came up with for the calendar.
Special thanks to Dan and his mad printable-making skills.
