Activity Advent Calendar

I have a pocket advent calendar that my mum made when we were little and wanted to use it for Elliot this year. We’re trying to reduce the waste we produce and increase our kindness activities and try to teach Elliot how being kind can be fun. So I decided that in each pocket I’d put a foil covered lolly/chocolate, so that we could make a ball to put into the recycling and a written activity. So if you’re thinking about doing something similar, and need some ideas, here’s the activities I put into the advent calendar.

  1. Help decorate Granny and Pa’s Christmas tree
  2. Make clay Christmas ornaments
  3. Call Santa – 02 6194 9939 gets you Santa’s voice mail or there’s plenty of ‘call Santa’ apps
  4. Donate some toys to the op shop
  5. Write Christmas letters to the Grandparents
  6. Make paper snow flakes
  7. Get a photo with Santa
  8. Enjoy a BBQ dinner at the park
  9. Show off your best manners all day
  10. Read two Christmas books with Mum
  11. Buy some food and donate to people in need
  12. Go to the jumping balloon/park and pick up some rubbish
  13. Deliver Christmas treats to the local police station
  14. Help Mum make a gingerbread house
  15. Take a picnic to the beach
  16. Go to the movies
  17. Write Christmas cards for your kinder teachers
  18. Give gifts to your kinder teachers
  19. Go to the Christmas Carols
  20. Deliver Christmas treats to the local paramedics
  21. Make bird feeders
  22. Deliver Christmas treats to the neighbours
  23. Enjoy a family movie
  24. Bake cookies for Santa

I’d love to hear any of your ideas below that could be added to this list.
