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


2. Book Ideas: Growing Book by Book has a brilliant idea to pair Elf on the Shelf with books and scenes from the books. Enchanted Learning has a Christmas Book Tree Advent.Elf on the Shelf Reads Books

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