A Family Advent Calendar
Make a large calendar grid on a piece of poster board (blue or rose for Advent is nice!). Be sure to leave the squares big enough to write your plans for each day! Plan your Advent season together, writing down special dates, get-togethers, parties, family outings, deadlines, saints’ days, etc. Add pictures to represent different activities. We like to draw 4 little candles in each Sunday box, with one lit the first Sunday, two the second, etc.
Hang in a place where you all can see it, and mark off the days until Christmas.
