My goal this year is to something, Christmasy (excuse the spelling), each day. Things are so busy between school, life, family, Cub Scouts, and now Girl Scouts (Yes..I am leading both..call me crazy!). I feel that we don’t “celebrate” enough.
My kids are 10 and 5, and both love Christmas! I love the crafts, baking, spending time together, watching those holiday specials and movies, etc. It seems though it ends up being rush, rush, rush until they are on Christmas Break (December 20th this year) and BAM it’s over!!
So each day I want to do a little something to celebrate. Not everyday is going to be big cookie baking fests, but little traditions we have started in the past and this year will help.
We have an Elf on the Shelf at our home now so that’s a touch of the season each morning. Then at night we work on our Advent Calendars.
Other things on my list:
Cub Scout meeting this week where we will make Tic Tac Toe games with Perler beads
Pack Christmas Party
Troop meeting making Snowman ornaments like these from A Cupcake for the Teacher
Cluster Christmas Party
Make ornament ball wreaths
Hopefully Snowball fights
Holiday Movies (Home Alone, Christmas Story, etc.)
