1st December - Start the advent calendar (we have a chocolate Thomas one this year!) and listen to Christmas music all morning!
2nd December - Write a letter to Santa and decorate with Christmas stickers. Put the letter under the sofa and wait for it to be collected! (This is hubbys tradition. He said he and his sisters always used to keep checking until it was gone!)
3rd December - Make a big snowman picture with cotton wool balls and black paint, buttons and anything else we might have.
4th December - Christmas movie night (with snacks!). Polar Express!
5th December - Make snowflakes out of paper and glitter. Hang them all up when they are dry!
6th December - Make salt dough decorations, paint and decorate. We will then have the special event of him hanging them himself on our mini tree here and then the big tree the next time he is home. I'm hoping that seeing his own creations will make him super proud of himself.
7th December - Use cookie cutters and paint and glitter to make Christmas pictures.
