Christmas Advent Activities and the Festive Freak



It’s that time of year again.


The time when we realise that we need to stop scoffing at the Christmas decorations up in the store because the big day is actually not that far away.


The time when we need to start making some lists ...and checking them twice. Sorry, had to be done!


And that glorious time of year when I get to unleash my inner festive freak and let her go to town.


There is so much incredible inspiration out there too. This stunning image by Yvette at The Stylist Splash has me fired up and ready to bake.

And that latest issue of Donna Hay Magazine had me drooling. Literally! I had to go and make myself some lunch.

I’m trying to convince my husband that these Christmas pyjamas are actually a necessity.

And this exquisite Christmas table for children by Mardi and Nicole over at Simply Sweet Soirees makes me smile – the brown paper tablecloth! Mini milk bottles and stripey straws! Those labels! That font! Mini pegs and doilies! Be still my tinsel-decked heart.

I’ve also started thinking about some fun Christmas activities that we can complete as part of our advent celebrations.


If you’re keen to make one there are so many incredibly looking advent calendars online at the moment. The girls from Simply Sweet Soirees have put together this collection and I simply cannot pick my favourite.


Our advent calendar is a special part of our traditions so I’ll be using it again this year (I shared it here last year along with all the activities we tried).


I’ve been pinning some cute ideas that I’m keen to try this year including this Santa beard countdown, these cute Christmas tree window decorations and I think the boys will love these Snow Shooters.

I’m also keen to add a new Christmas film (or two) to our current repertoire. What’s your family’s favourite Christmas movie?
