Days of advent, 1 - 3

5 years ago

I decided to do an advent calendar with activities this year.  I was gonna come up with it all on my own, but then I found this.  And there wasn’t really a reason to work so hard.  Not only are all the activities planned, but there was a materials list for me to take to the store with me, to make sure I have everything on hand. Woot!

Day 1: M&M Wreath

DSCN2101 The general idea is to put green M&M’s in the green circle and the red M&M’s in the…  
Well, you get it. DSCN2108 This is mostly what Thing 2 did.  Husband did his helped him with his wreath. DSCN2107 Thing 1 got really into it though. DSCN2110 And he was very proud of the finished product.
And then he ate M&M’s.

Day 2: Ornament Matching Game

DSCN2116 Match the shapes, make a tree.  It was pretty simple, but they had a great time…
For like 3 minutes.  And then they started fighting over the pieces…
Even though I’d made them each their own set…
Oh well.

Day 3: Bow Painting

DSCN2117 Instead of paint brushes we used bows.  Or fingers, in this guy’s case. DSCN2118 Is that art, or what?
