More Fun Advent Activities

Otherwise titled using a toddler as an excuse to search the internet and find fun activities to do!

We had fun using more toilet paper rolls to create a Nativity scene that little hands (and mouths) can play with.

It required printing (by Mummy), colouring in, cutting and pasting.  I did spread it over several days as I knew Eva’s concentration wasn’t going to last all 16 pieces in one sitting. Of course Eva loved tell me “I do it!”.  Her love of Clag glue is cute.

This week Hugo has decided that moving is fun and this was the first activity where Eva realised that it’s not going to be fun to be interrupted by Hugo.

Eva is very proud of her final Nativity scene complete with camels for the wise men and a stable for baby Jesus.

Another daily countdown as well as our Advent Calendar is a birthday cake for Jesus.

Another activity from our Advent calendar was to shop for and donate a gift for a child to the Uniting Care Tree at Target.  Eva seemed to enjoy shopping for another 3 year old girl.  Eva hoped that this girl could come and play in her cubby house!

Here’s a couple of clever videos that you might enjoy:

Oh it’s so much fun preparing for the birth of Jesus with a little person who’s so enthusiastic about anything I suggest.
