2010 Activity Advent Calendar (Printable)

Here is the printable 2010 Activity Advent Calendar!

~Countdown to Christmas with an Activity Each Day~
This was B’s favorite part of Christmas last year! We were doing these activities at 7 am because he just couldn’t wait one more minute to draw a card and do the activity!
Here’s What To Do:
Print the 2010 Activity Advent Calendar Cards and Materials List and put the cards somewhere special. It could be in pockets like I did last year, hanging on the tree, wrapped in small boxes, in a special bowl, or hanging from a strand of garland. Then, use the materials list to help you start gathering.

    Thank you for this. We did your advent activities last year. After we did the activity, my daughter liked for me to bring up your blog so she could see what your projects look like. I am looking forward to doing it again. Thanks!

    HI there, I’ll be using your advent ideas this year with my kids. Can you please clarify the Alphabet Tree Mats? Thanks kindly.

    Use a dot marker, bingo chips, or even color the letters the color that is shown in the top left corner. So all of the As will be the same color, Bs the same, etc. You could print and work on all of the pages or just do a few. Totally up to you.
    Enjoy and let me know if you have any other questions!
