In addition to the gingerbread house decorating, we had a bunch of fun activities for the Activity Advent calendar this week.
We made handprint reindeer:
We wrote/dictated a letter to Santa:
We had a dance party to Christmas music in our Christmas pajamas:
June danced. Bennett attempted to change the default language on our cable box.
We had Polar Express night, where we read the book and then watched the movie with hot chocolate.
We turned our refrigerator into a snowman:
(Thanks to my mother in-law, Judy, for sending this cool magnet set. It really came in handy on a day where we needed a backup option. 'Ice Skating' was actually on the list for that day, but we ended up having morning gymnastics and a birthday party in the afternoon, so an at-home activity was better suited for the day. Plus we ended up having friends over that night, which was exciting enough on its own!)
It was probably meant to go on the front of the fridge but let's be honest, me cleaning off that fridge isn't in the cards right now. (And Bennett loves pulling all the letter off!)
June and I bought a bunch of dog and cat treats and donated them to an animal shelter:
June loved walking around and seeing all of the dogs and cats and was pretty bummed that we couldn't take one home.
