Advent Activities For The Whole Family


Yesterday I started and finished a new handmade Christmas Advent Calendar with the help of hubby and the kids.

It is a wooden advent tree made from a pallet we have had lying around for ages. And the bags are made from a charm pack of 'In from the Cold'. Inside each bag is 24 different advent activities.

Those activities included some of the following ideas:


  1. Put up and Decorate the Christmas Tree
  2. Make Christmas Cookies
  3. Make paper chains to decorate the house with
  4. Watch a Christmas movie
  5. Make salt dough decorations
  6. Make candy cane bark
  7. Checkout the neighbourhood Christmas Lights
  8. Make a Christmas movie message to send to friends and family
  9. Go on a candy cane hunt
  10. Do some Christmas colouring in
  11. Make red and green playdough
  12. Listen to Christmas songs
  13. Make Christmas cards for friends and family
  14. Make gifts for school friends
  15. Make reindeer food
  16. Do some Christmas crafts
  17. Read Christmas books
  18. Have a loungeroom slumber party and watch as many Christmas movies as we can
  19. Decorate Christmas biscuits
  20. Make food treats to give to friends and neighbours
  21. Make a list of things that you are thankful for
  22. Make new decorations for the Christmas tree
  23. Make Christmas tree brownies
  24. Open one Christmas gift

What kind of Advent activities do you do?
