Are you ready?

Yay, it's Advent Sunday tomorrow.  And you know what that means - the Christmas countdown begins!

I have been looking around for Advent ideas, and have found tons of things to do.  Even though I now have the children's flu, I will persevere and tomorrow will be working on this idea from MayaMade TP Advent.  Fortunately I have loads of cardboard inners, so we should have enough for the whole thing.

This will be filled with little activity tickets, and I found a lovely set of vintage prints to use - here, and a whole bunch of ideas to put ON the tickets here. On this lovely site you can move through from one activity to the next by clicking on the link at the top of the post.  Have a look at her other pages too - the advent ideas are from a while ago, but there is so much more to look at here!  I won't be doing all of those listed, but a good selection have gone on the list.  One of my favourite ideas is a different book related to the general theme of Winter - which I will definitely be incorporating.  TIme to go and sort the book shelves out!

I will also be including a few activities like 'take a walk to see the Christmas lights', 'make eggnog and drink it by candlelight', and of course 'decorate the tree'!  It would be really nice to see what everyone comes up with - I will be posting pics as soon as I get going tomorrow - so if anyone else wants to join in with their makes, let me know and I'll set up a Flikr pool.

Wishing you all a lovely, peaceful and fun-filled Advent season.

  1. Sadly I won't be doing anything at all fun with mine, coz I'm too busy being mean and trying to launch the business - but I did love the Easter Fabric Treasure Hunt I did, which I'm planning to do for Christmas too. If you have a house full of stuff you've made, you probably still have scraps of the fabric, which you stick to card and then off they go to find them! You can see it on my blog under, um, treasure hunt or summink!
    The daughters just went nuts for it.
    ooh they love a treasure hunt!
    You could do an Advent one, and hide a chocolate or a little prize there!
    Heck and bother, never mind the business, I'm going to have to do that now!
