Being a mom of two very active boys, I am constantly thinking of different ways to keep their brains active and bodies entertained.
With that being said, this year's advent calendar was so fun to put together. I sewed 25 little bags. My friend Rebecca helped me with the #s. I then filled them with different Lego guys. I purchased the "Lego Advent" calendar and pulled it all apart. It basically was filled with guys. In my opinion it needed more active play. So we made:
Santa's work shop. . .
chunky snow men. . .
some ski slopes.
One morning they had a fire to put out.
They even made a forest of Christmas trees. It was a Advent calendar success. The boys loved it! What the heck am I going to do next year? --Emily
