advent is upon us!
Celebrating holidays - and especially Christmas - with kiddos is so much more meaningful...magical...memorable.
This year we are doing two advent "calendars" of sorts. One is the same calendar we used last year, with a card for each day that states what activity we will do together for that day. So far we have looked at Christmas lights, made paper garland, and baked cookies! Rainer is at the age where he wants to do everything by himself, and it's pretty cute watching him interact with his big bro.
The other "calendar" is these baggies hung with clothes pins on twine. Each day the boys open a bag which has a small goodie, treat, or gift. It's a fun little compliment to the daily activities, and it gives them something to do in the morning and the evening!
The kiddos have been LOVING having Nonna and Grandpa here to play with and do special activities with. Here they are making their garland...
And here is Mr. Professional Glue Stick Master...
so much fun!
Wishing you an advent season filled with joy and peace!
