Advent calendars are lots of fun for momstown kids - especially when they have a creative twist to them! Our main momstown mama has a brilliant idea to bring literacy into advent excitement - she turns her kids' favourite holiday stories into an advent activity.
What you need:
- Your favourite kids' holiday books (don't need to buy new ones, just pull out the ones you have!)
- Wrapping paper
You kids can open a new one each night. They feel new even though they are favourites from years past.
Each kid takes a turn opening them up (keeping them under the tree makes it really festive!) Then, put the opened ones in a basket near your fireplace or favourite reading spot, for cozy cuddle and read time together.
momstown's got some great recommendations for holiday books!
