Weekend Wishes : Advent Ideas

…. And so it seems December is almost upon us.
This time of year is so full of excitement, christmas magic and cheer,
we thought it might be festive to share the pins we have
spotted on Pinterest that are inspiring us for Advent.

This is a firm favourite.
Would this not  be a lovely Tradition to start?
A different Nativity/winter/Christmas story
each evening before advent bedtimes.

Envelopes make a clean, neat and tidy focal point.
It makes a great visual display for the *OCD* in us!

Little Buckets of fun!

Advent challenges/activities…
this could be a good one to focus on the experience of
Christmas rather than spending lots of extra pennies.
Activities could include, Choose and buy your tree for example.

Love the matchboxes too.

Christmas cheer calendar.
Might be be good to involve tots in the making here!

Adore this idea.
A lovely reason to remember and reminisce about
why each ornament is special in the run up to Christmas.
(This might take a little organizing ahead of time though!
Attic adventures)
