ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Advent Activity Calendar

Welcome to the First day of December and the official start to the Holidays, at least for my family! 
This year to kick off the season I decided to make an advent calendar; however, since I have 3 children and I didn't want them fighting over the sweet treat for each day, I made our calendar an activity based project. I found a few examples on Pinterest and then came up with the following list of things to do with the kiddos.

List of Festive Family Activities:

Decorate for Christmas 
Write a letter to Santa 
Take a Family Christmas picture 
Read a Christmas Story at bedtime 
Do something nice for a sibling 
Make paper snowflakes 
Sing Christmas songs all day 
Donate toy you don’t play with anymore 
Make a craft with Mom 
Cook dinner together as a family 
Family Christmas movie night 
Make snowman soup 
Make Christmas cards for your Grandparents 
Eat Dessert first at dinnertime 
Spread holiday cheer to friends 
Make a gift for someone special 
Bake and Decorate cookies 
Color Christmas pictures 
Have a campout by the Christmas tree 
Have lunch somewhere special 
See some snow with family 
Drive around and look at Holiday lights 
Sing and dance to Christmas Carols 
Wear new Christmas pajamas to bed 
Spend the day with family, Merry Christmas!!

I then made 25 envelopes, matting them and adding a date label.

I then made a box to hold all the envelopes and decorated it with coordinating supplies.

The daily cards followed next with their own matting but these are not dated so they can be mixed up or change over the years if need be. 

I am so very happy with how this project turned out. It's going to be fun to see how the kids react to the daily activities we have planned. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
