Afterschool Community: Advent Ideas Roundup

Favorite Advent Calendar Ideas

Welcome to December! We had a fantastic Thanksgiving week and kicked off December with our own chocolate Advent calendar (pictured above). This week I wanted to share several of my favorite Advent ideas linked in the past couple of weeks.
1. Kindness Ideas: JDaniel’s Mom offered 25 Advent Blessings and Coffee Cup and Crayons offered 24 Acts of Kindness

3. Printable activities: Little Wonders’ Days shares her Advent in a Suitcase with great printable activities for kids.
