It’s that time of year again. We can spend half the day on advent stuff.
This year we’ve moved our colouring in to book form and I have one too :). Can still download the pictures from Activity Village day by day.
We do have a soft spot fo online advent calendars though and there are some good ones below.
Royal Institution – new video every day based on thermodynamics
Complete a different Science themed activity every day
Fitzwilliam Museum – Cambridge
Project Britain – learn about Christmas in differnt countries
26 Stories – not strictly an advent calendar but set up like one 26 Illustrated Christmas stories (for older children/adults)
Shape – every day is an artwork based on a shape
Crafting fun from Red Ted Art
Games every day from the wonderful Norad Santa tracker
Last but not least by any means (you can have no idea how much work goes in to this every year!) an advent colouring page and more every day from Activity Village
We’re also intending to do a reverse advent calendar where you pack an item a day for our local foodbank.
Can’t forget the chocolate! Homemade calendars still going strong. I need to source more Santas as Jack’s isn’t symmetrical and that upsets him.
P.S. We did do stuff on Tuesday! Proper work too of the making notes for a writing project and making a powerpoint presentation sort of work. The sort of thing even none home eders would look and think – that’s education. Doesn’t lend itself nicely to blogging though. Sam did bake biscuits though.
