An Advent Catch-Up
Its been a busy couple of weeks with christmas, school holidays and an illness sweeping through the house, so time to post has been short. I really wanted to keep the blog updated with our advent activities, but unfortunately that wasn’t to be. So instead here is a supersized advent update 😀
After last years advent being pretty non-existent due to packing and moving house this year we went all out with activities and craft. Of course not every day was an activity, mostly because I really couldn’t cope with that! However, we did have a lot of activities and (mostly) a lot of fun. Here’s what the kids did.
We made a gingerbread house, for the first time ever. This was definitely a learning experience. I now know how much to bake the gingerbread for and what consistency the icing needs to be.
It looked good for about 5 minutes, before it fell apart!
At least it tasted good!
We also made felt crowns one day and placemats another day which were used on christmas day.
Miss Z also made herself one, but disappeared with hers before I got a photo.
Hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
