2012 Advent Activities Printable Pack

IBG christmas advent activities
Last year, I explained to my readers at Intentional By Grace how I made our very frugal DIY Advent Calendar. I’ve decided to use it again this year, and I’m really excited about it.

For our little family, the holidays are about being together and celebrating the birth of Jesus. Family is a gift, and we use the Advent activities to promote togetherness, unity, and hopefully a lot of fun and laughter!

Here are Our 2012 Advent Activities:

Eat Dinner in front of the Christmas Tree
Make Christmas Tree Ornaments {Cinnamon Ornaments or Salt Dough Ornaments look fun!}
Make a felt Christmas Tree for the Wall
Food for Fines at the Library!

  1. Just a question…what is food for fines at the library? Thanks for this post. I love the idea of a Jesse Tree. I had never heard of it before. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Our local library allows you to bring in food to pay for our fines during the month of December. We get our fines (all $3 worth) wiped clean for bringing in food for a good cause. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is wonderful! I have been doing my last-minute scrambling to create something more formal than the more spontaneous things we’ve done the last couple years. Thanks for sharing what you do along with your list! I’m in the process of creating an Advent post on my blog and wanted to be sure to link back to you ๐Ÿ˜‰
