Christmas Traditions - Advent Calendar Day Two

Day Two of our Christmas Advent Calendar was to "Make a Cardboard Gingerbread House" which seemed like a fun activity when I added it to our calendar. It turned out to be a bit lame but I think Molly enjoyed the activity. We started out the afternoon by putting up the tree and starting to decorate it. I'll probably finish decorating it after the kids go to bed as ornaments and toddlers do not mix very well.

Maggie's contribution to today's advent fun was to roam around chewing on a foam letter while throwing things around the house. She found that to be completely awesome.

In the end, Molly had a great time using her glue stick and coloring her Cardboard Gingerbread House. It was a good activity for a quiet afternoon at home. I think next year though, we might tackle a real gingerbread house instead. That sounds way more delicious to me.
