Activity Advent Review

Here are the activities from our homemade advent calendar that we completed this week

Put up the Tree

Make Paper Snowflakes for our window
and then make virtual snowflakes at Make-A-Flake - Totally addictive by the way even for Adults.. the scissor even make cutting sounds :)

Decorate Gingerbread house (like how I coordinate our activites for what needs to be done? ;)

Make Cinnamon Ornaments

Easy and smell lovely - 3 ingredients - 1 cup cinnamon, 1 cup apple sauce and a little glue!! Recipe Here It surprising makes quite a few so you can do the recipe smaller.. (It is hard to find cinnamon in bulk in Australia.. I only found the IGA had a jar in the size I wanted at a cheap enough price. It was $2.50 for a jar, I used one and a half.. all the other shops just sold cinnamon in tiny bags a 1/4 of the size for the same price)

The Girls slept under the Christmas Tree - I forgot to get a photo!

Make jar lanterns to go on a lantern walk tonight looking for christmas lights

We used old jars, some wire for a handle and decorated with red, green and gold tissue paper and PVA glue and some glitter
