Last year for Advent we did an awesome activity every day for advent it was lots of fun and my boys really enjoyed it. This year I asked my big boy Blake (8) if he would like to do it again and the answer was a big yes! Later he came back to me and asked if we could also do one of those chocolate things as well. My initial reaction was no only because Luke (7) is lactose intolerant and chocolate does not sit well with him. I thought about it for a while and decided that I would make our own chocolate advent that way luke can enjoy a treat that works for him.
I ended up deciding that my husband and I would also enjoy this little advent treat so I have made a set for each of us. I simply wrapped all the treats in blue and silver paper and printed out some numbers and stuck them on.
Hubby and Blake have the naughty choccies and luke and I have something a little healthier. We are still also going to do an activity each day but since this type of food is not normally in our house it will be nice to have a treat!If you have lovely sensible children (or adults!) you may not need to number them but my boys would eat the entire jar in one go!!
I'm yet to wrap mine up, I might wrap them in a little more girly colours I'm not sure yet.I was glad to have almost crossed this one off my list, its one more thing done in my orginisation for christmas and it always feels good to cross things off my list!
I think they will add to the decorations this year too, they fit in with the colour scheme of this room.
I must share our advent activities too. There are so many lovely advent ideas out there, what do you do for advent? And do you just let the kids participate in advent or do you do it too?
