Hey everyone! I am resurrecting this blog today to share with you our 25 days of Christmas activities! I figured it would be better to share early in case you want to create your own calendar and start planning your family activities! The things on the calendar are additional activities to the Anne Voskamp advent book…though I do agree with some reviews, that some of the stories are not completely accurate according the Bible, so I am on the fence about buying a new one (recommendations welcome!) or just looking at this as more of a story book with some good lessons thrown in.
So! Here is our December calendar and below it is a list of the days along with links if needed or wanted! Tuesday’s are our family nights, so I put a movie down for each of those days.

**Bonus idea in case they hate one of the ones for a day or it goes super quick or too hard**
So! I hope that was helpful and gave you some ideas! I am so grateful for the awesome ideas my Facebook friends and family suggested! We don’t do much for Christmas as we don’t have hardly any family that celebrates Christmas, so I am excited to make this a special holiday season this year!!
