Advent Calendar Activities


I've always loved the idea of the Advent Calendar and now that I have a 2-year-old, I'm really into this idea. I knit the Smitten Advent Calendar Mittens this year and decided to fill them with chocolate and activities. 


Initially I was going to just fill the mittens with chocolates but then a friend (with a toddler and a newborn) said she was going to do activities and I decided I couldn't go the lazy route. Really the activities are the cool part of the advent calendar along with all the memories we'll be making! (Thanks for the inspiration, Kelsey!)


I'll be cataloging our activities in a Flickr Set which has already gotten off to a fun start!
