25 Days of Christmas Advent Activity Calendar to Slow Down This Season

Christmas Activities

I have been working my way through this Christmas Advent Activity Calendar this month, but this post is better late than never! We made gingerbread cookies, DIY ornaments, and made the house smell like Christmas. I wanted to get the ideas that I had for this activity calendar down on paper and into this felt calendar that I have.

This advent activity calendar is for anyone that wants to enjoy the season without feeling overwhelmed by all of the activities you can do in a season.

These activities can be done as a couple, by yourself, or with your kids. I do a little bit of each. Some of the activities Joel and I do as date nights, some of them I do alone when Joel is working or Thea is sleeping. Others I can do with Thea and it's fun to start making our own traditions for her childhood.

Putting these Christmas activity ideas into a calendar feels like taking a breather. I am allowing myself to focus on ONE item per day. There are so many things to do at Christmas time that having them in my head feels like a very long list that I may never get through. This calendar allows me to be intentional about creating memories each day without feeling behind.

The activities selected in this calendar are very intentional for our family. I wanted to create ideas that had meaning behind them. I love Christmas music and the smell of Christmas, but I wanted to add activities that felt selfless. Thea will take these traditions and make them her own one day. I want to give her meaning behind Christmas in addition to giving or receiving gifts with love.

If you have traditions that you would like to incorporate you can swap them out to make your own!

You Will Need:

  • Calendar with pockets
  • Scissors or Paper Cutter
  • Printer
  • Cardstock
  • Peppermint Mocha or Choice of Holiday Drink

How to Print the Activity Cards:

  1. I recommend printing these cards on 8.5x11 sheets of cardstock OR you can use regular computer paper. Printing them on cardstock makes them a little bit sturdier when sliding them into the pockets of the calendar. You will need to print them on two separate sheets.
  2. Once you have printed out the cards, you can cut them by either using a pair of scissors or a paper cutter. I keep a cutter on hand to make it easier for projects that I do such as this one.
  3. Finish cutting each square individually, then place them in the corresponding pockets of the calendar.
  4. Complete one activity per day, take photos, make memories, and have fun this holiday season.
