December 1st: Kicking off the Advent Season

Sunday, December 1, 2013

This year in addition to December Daily, I have created a list of daily activities for the little guy.  My hope is that this becomes an annual tradition and helps us celebrate the season together.  I purchased an advent calendar from Bronner's that I can put a slip of paper in each day that includes our activity.  

For December 1 we opened up a felt Christmas tree to put on the wall.  I really thought that this would be hit, but so far the tree has been played with more by me than the boy.

I'll let you in on the secret of the other activities since I'm sure you won't spoil the surprise.
