Holiday Countdown

We started a Holiday Countdown calendar a couple years ago, but now that we have young children, I want to add some additional activities that are more relevant to them (while also keeping it simple, since weeknights are already pretty hectic since we try to get everything done in time for a 6:30pm bedtime). Here are some things to add to our list:

  • Drink eggnog
  • Drink hot chocolate
  • Visit the Zilker Tree
  • Visit 37th Street lights
  • Visit Christmas house at 1912 Crystal Shores 
  • Go ice-skating (we won't do it this year, but I'll go ahead and make a tag for it for future years)
  • Attend the Cherrywood Art Festival
  • Making bagged lunches and delivering them to homeless people on the street
  • Make a gingerbread house
  • Write a letter as a family to reminisce about the year
Supplies we need:
  • Eggnog
  • Hot chocolate
  • Marshmallows
  • Paper bags
  • Bread 
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Bags of chips
  • Water bottles
  • Bags of cookies
  • Graham crackers
  • Candy
I'm looking forward to it!

I'll pay close attention and make sure this stuff doesn't start to feel stressful. That would miss the point entirely!
