Our first week of advent calendar activities

This year I've decided to do our advent calendar a bit differently.  Instead of putting things in the pockets now that L can read some things I put in little messages.

Day 1
"Go to pig pillow"
On her pig pillow she found a little wooden snowman all painted up and one for her to paint.
 Day 2
"Make snowflakes"
L needed some help with these or she would have cut her snowflakes to bits!  We also did a snowflake matching activity from last year that was way to easy for her this year.
 Day 3
"Go to the mat"
On the mat she found this "growing" Rudolph.  Super exciting! It's twice that size now.
 Day 4
"Put up Christmas tree"
We ended up getting a tree from a fundraiser at L's school.  It's absolutely massive and takes up a quarter of our living room!  L had so much fun putting all of the ornaments on the same branch.
Here is a picture of some of the carnage!
Day 5
"Make snowman pancakes"
Yummy wholewheat pancakes with blueberries!
I'm loving reading about everyone's advent activities across the blogsphere!  Check out this cool mailbox idea over at Walk Beside Me.
