Day three and little bits of Christmas have poked their heads up from the ground. The advent buckets have made a reappearance and have begun to be filled with little bits and bobs. since many of our advent gifts are activities, and my daughter is too young to read, I print out coloring pages that I find online that are a clue to the day’s activity. For instance, Day 4 has a train coloring page because we are going on our annual Santa Train trip.
In the background on the left page you’ll see this year’s super cheap, and super handmade decoration inspired by ones I saw online (I can’t remember the source but will link if I find it). Mason jars + Epsom salt + tea light candle. It looks like a luminaria in snow.
Here’s the journaling:
At long last the first decorations have gone up. The tree is still in the garage. All else is still stacked in plastic storage bins. It was fun to pull out the advent buckets for the second year and begin to fill them with activities and small gifts. A jam packed holiday weekend awaits us. We may have to relish in these small signs of Christmas for a few more days.
