We are loving Advent. I pretty much spend the first five minutes lighting the candle and letting Asa and Millicent blow it out. Usually Asa is blowing it out before it's lit. Last night Jeff walked in and Asa had the lighter and my scissors waiting on us to start. (I have no idea why he had the scissors.)
Jingle Bell Dance
Sounds silly. IT IS!
We HAVE to get the video camera out for this one because it gets hysterical. If we have a CD handy, we might play Jingle Bells, but otherwise we just sing it.
While we sing, each person does a dance to go with the song. One at a time, of course, while I record it.
Some kids (namely my husband) go all out when doing their dance.
Now I just want to say that if you didn't start on Sunday it doesn't mean you can't participate in Advent this year. Just get started today. Write down the Jingle Bell dance on your calendar and tell the kids that's your first Advent activity. You'll love it! Then to make me supremely happy this holiday season, post it on your blog for me to watch.
