I decided to make my own as I am not keen on giving them chocolates each day and I am also a picky chocolate eater and couldn't find one with dark chocolate. The only problem with home-made, is that I am not a crafty person. As you can see, it is really rather simple, but it works. I like the idea of separate envelopes, as this way I could write my own notes, create my own activities and thus limit the edible treats.
- make paper snowflakes
- decorate a Christmas ornament (set aside)
- make a Christmas card for someone you love
- make a paper chain
- make a craft/bake for your teacher
- do something for our neighbours
- watch a Christmas movie
- sing your favourite Christmas carol
- have a candle light dinner
- read a Christmas book
- play a family game
- colour Christmas pictures (printed and set aside)
- give a treat (included in the pouch) to someone else
- special activities for the advent candles of (hope, peace, joy and love)
Have fun with it. If I can make my own you definitely can as well. The girls did help me with making the board and are just thrilled with opening something each day. I don't think they care what it looks like.
