Advent ~ Weeks 2 & 3

Our weeks this December have really been focused on the Christmas spirit. As part of our advent calendar, we are doing a different holiday activity every day. We also added in plenty of other fun play, learning activities, baking and cooking :)

I finally made my own Play Dough and it turned out great. It is so easy to make that I plan on only making home-made play dough from now on. I added green food coloring and glitter to it to make it a little more Christmasy... 











 We made little snowman and reindeer bells... This was a little craft kit that I got from JoAnn's...




 We celebrated St. Nikolaus on December 6th. We cleaned out boots and put them in front of our door and St. Nikolaus was so kind to bring a little treat. Mandarin oranges, chocolate reindeers and a gift to share.


 On a different day, we decorated our gingerbread house. The kids absolutely LOVE this every year :)





 We made beeswax candles, which was also a big hit!











 We also made yummy granola, some of which we will give away as Christmas gifts...




 We made big Christmas stars to decorate our windows....


Tot School
