There is something really magical about spending quality time with family over December. The small traditions that make this time of year remarkable and that cement memories in our children’s hearts. They don’t have to be expensive or take lots of time, in fact often children really love and remember the smallest things.

My boys love our Advent traditions and even now as teens insist that we have Christmas hot chocolate and movie nights. We still ice gingerbread together.

This year our traditions might have to be a little different due to social distancing but there is no reason that we can not all have a wonderful magical advent.

In fact, I think that it is even more reason to find small joy in each of the days. So I have created a printable advent activity calendar with foldable envelopes filled with an activity each day and also a set of numbers for you to print and use.

If this year has given me anything, it is a total appreciation of spending time with the people I love. So I have gone through our big long list of Advent activities and used 24 to make this beautiful simple calendar.

This advent activity printable is really easy to use, just download, print, cut and fold. These envelopes fold into themselves, so no glue needed. I have made it super easy for any Cricut owners out there and you can find the printable here for Cricut.

We decided to clip each envelope off a wire fairy lights using clear pegs and to pop numbers on the front. We even have a printable for the numbers (here for Cricut users)
