    Lydia's Paper Advent Activities

    This year, since my kiddo is only 18mo old, I thought instead of getting a chocolate advent calendar - we'd do an actvities calendar.

    And, since you guys will all appreciate it - I think I'll share our photos of the adventures!

    Here's the first few days, so far:


    1st: MAKE A SNOW ANGEL


    We don't have any snow here in Toronto yet - so we just sort of mimed it on the carpet (she wasn't that interested haha!)

    2nd, 3rd & 4th:



    We also didn't have any cotton balls - so that's toilet paper.

    I think my favourite so far has been the socks - because we have lots of them to choose from!

    I'm off to NYC this weekend - but will update another batch next week! Hope you guys don't mind seeing!

    I can't believe how time flies- she's so big now! And I think the activities are great- thanks for the pics!
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    These next few years will be the BEST Christmases of your life --- enjoy! Take videos if you can.

    Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
