Advent Basket - A family tradition

Well, I've been working on our advent basket. We wrap up Christmas stories, movies, treats and activities in brown paper bags and wrapping paper. Each is numbered and opened on the corresponding day. We have most of the items already as we wrap up movies and books that we already have but haven't been read since the previous Christmas.
  1. Book - A Child was Born
  2. Christmas Candy
  3. Christmas Craft - String garland for Christmas Tree
  4. Christmas Movie - Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas
  5. Put up the Christmas tree
  6. Write letter to Santa and mail out Christmas packages and cards
  7. Book - Get Well Santa
  8. Christmas Movie - The Santa Clause
  9. Christmas Candy
  10. Book - Mooseltoe
  11. Decorate Christmas cards for school friends
  12. Book - The First Night
  13. Christmas Movie - Mickey's Special Christmas
  14. Christmas treat and $20 to shop for Dad's Christmas gift
  15. Book - How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  16. Christmas Movie - Santa Clause 2
  17. Christmas Playdough
  18. Go the Theatre and watch "Polar Express Movie"
  19. Christmas treat
  20. Cookie Factory
  21. Christmas Gift Making - wands for friends
  22. Christmas Movie - Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  23. Santa's Helper - Deliver Goodies to Friends
  24. Book - Come and See and Twas the Night before Christmas

It's a fun way to focus on specific elements of Christmas in a fun way. It keeps me on track and makes certain that we focus on Christmas everyday.
