Sorry I've been such a slacker with the posts lately. It seems like all of my energy got up and went- without me- I'm just getting the basics done and hoping to get back on track before the holidays come and go while I'm still napping :o)
I did search blog land for some fun ideas to use with my activity day girls- (about 10 girls ages 8-11 that come over twice a month for an activity). Today we made advent calendars that included small tasks to remind the girls about the true meaning of Christmas.
I thought I'd share a few of the good ideas I stumbled across in my search for inspiration:
Advent Calendars at Skip to my Lou
More adorable and some easy advent calendars at Crafty Crow
Cutest Felt Owl Ornaments at Juicy Bits My mom, daughter and I did make some felt ornaments one night... look, even my owl looks tired!
Sarah Jane's literary countdown to Christmas
I think it would be fun to make a version of the pom pom garland over at elsie marley's blog
Hope your holiday season is off to a glorious start!
