Ethan's Activity Advent Calendar


Today I finished my preparations for Ethan's advent calendar this year.  There are so many fantastic ideas out there (just search Pinterest!) but I wanted something quite simple that Ethan would be able to enjoy at his age (he's just over 2 now).  I settled on the idea of using a pre made wooden advent calendar with boxes that I could put a healthy treat and an activity card in. The boxes are quite small, but I found these Organix Mini Oaty Bites that fit in the box perfectly.  

The activities I chose are all appropriate for a young toddler, and are things that I had hoped to do this month anyway.  I have created 30 cards, and plan to put each one in the night before, with a few extras so that if there are changes to our schedule I won't have to let Ethan down and have lots of options to chose from.  I have also put a little picture (clip art or from google images) to go with each activity so that Ethan can have a guess at what it is, as he's too young to read the cards.  Now I just can't wait until he gets to open the first one on Sunday!
