Advent Inspiration

Sunday 30th November will be the first of the four advent Sundays leading up to Christmas.  As a child advent meant wrapping up in winter woolies and heading to our village church for carols, a Christingle service (which meant sweets), lighting the candle on the advent wreath and at home I shared a chocolate advent calender with my siblings  (which meant a chocolate treat every 3 days!).

Why not create your own advent calender with a festive activity, small treat, good deed or act of kindness each day.  It doesn't have to be all about the chocolates... 'Write to Santa', 'Help decorate the Christmas Cake', 'Make Christmas cards', 'Pick out the Christmas tree', 'Choose some old toys and books and take them to children in need'.

 Go on... Get creative... Surprise and excite your little ones! 

Here's some inspiration...
