Making Christmas Memories Part 1

11:09 AM

It is starting to look a lot like Christmas here in Utah. Snow just began falling and we are welcoming it here at this DIY diva Home! Little dude started squealing with excitement when he looked out the window, and he is now currently searching for his boots.

In honor of the season, we started our Making Memory Advent, and it is a total HIT at my house! Little dude can't wait to open his "present" everyday.

Day one:

Make a paper chain to count down the days until Christmas.

Day two:

Learn about the true meaning of Christmas with the nativity. (I got this nativity from Target. I love it, and the kids LOVE it even more!)

Day three:
Read a new book about the true meaning of Christmas.

What Christmas activities have you started this December???

It's not too late to start making Christmas memories!
Start now!
It is amazingly fun!
You can do it with your kids, and some of our readers even thought it might be fun to adapt the activities for a spouse or significant other. For the list of my memory making ideas just click HERE.
