Advent - 15 days left till Christmas
We usually do salt dough and make handprints for everyone and then paint them. Since my tree is pretty much a decoration for the kids I enjoy hanging their creations on it.
I also try to buy a few little things to make as well as scour the internet for creative options.
I really don't have much planned today. Family Fun magazine had some little toy soldiers to make from toilet paper holders so we'll probably do those. Other than that, I'm out of ideas. So please, if you have any EASY, I mean, EASY ideas for crafts, please share. We like to give them away too.
Also everyone draws a secret name (within just our family) and we make a gift for them. So today is a good day for someone to figure out they can make their secret person something.
Read to someone younger
The older girls do this about half the time...but that's not quite enough. Yesterday everyone willingly and quickly read to the little ones. They got read to a lot. They LOVED it.
