Last year was the first year that we did any sort of Advent type activity in our homeschool. We had such a blast that I wanted to provide you with a list of different ideas that you could choose from! 

We did something similar to #4 and #7 where we had a different activity that we participated in each day for the 25 days leading up to Christmas! 

The kids and I enjoyed each and every activity and my husband was able to join in on the weekend ones! It was a memorable experience that we plan on doing again this year! 

I have my eye on #5 one of these years, but this year I think we'll stick with the activities!
