Printable Advent Activities, Days 1-7

advent activities, Christmas, countdown to Christmas
 5x7 piece of cardboard covered with
scrapbook paper and embellished with stickers.
Our advent calendar this year that will start on December 1st and run through December 24th.  I will change the number on the front each night as we count up to Christmas.

The backside of the card has a bible verse from the Christmas story, a character or object to place in the manger scene, a book to read, and a go along activity for the day.  I will change this each night.

This is our basket of seasonal books that will be in our living room. We have quite a few books, but what I don't have we will borrow from our library. I've added a few fleece throws to the basket to make reading a little more cozy on chilly nights.

Here are our plans for days 1-7.  Look for another post with the remaining days soon.....
