Online Advent Calendars

Sam has been asking if we can do the Norad advent calendar again this year. 
Reminded me I promised to share some of the online advent calendars I know. 
When Sam was younger I found we could pretty much cover everything with advent calendars. Found them perfect for helping maintain a feeling of ‘doing something’ and focus when excitement, a packed calendar and the inevitable seasonal bugs turn normal routines on their head. Or for those who could benefit from a spell of deschooling but don’t want to let go of all structure.

Haven’t found a good one of literacy but we have so many Christmas story  and poety books it’s always been easy to tick that box.

I’ve only include ones that look like they are up and working this year. Suspect more will come on line in the next week so worth watching Fb pages of sites of interest.
