As an alternative to the Advent Calendar where the kids gets candy or small trinkets, I would like to offer up experiences to enjoy the holiday season together. Some of the items on this list will work for everyone, and some you may need to change. I typed these out in order we will do them because I will be putting them on our Advent Tree, and so I looked at our calendar to see what events I had planned for us so that I would have them matched up with the appropriate day. Some of these events might not be options for you. I also added Do 5 Flips with mom because my kids like to do flips off me and I don't always offer it up much, so it would be fun for them to have me offering it to them.
I hope this list gives you some ideas on how you can create special experiences with your children this holiday season.
