Countdown to Christmas–Day 1

2011-11-30-Advent-Calendar-copy3

Day 1 of our Advent activities this year was to make a Christmas Star paper chain. Kahlen loves making paper chains, so this was a good one. Nate even got in on the action this time. No pictures of actually making it because when an almost-5-year-old and a 2.5-year-old and a stapler are all involved, mommy gets to help too :) It’s now hanging right around the corner from the advent calendar. Good place for it so we can tuck it up if other littles come over to play.2011-12-01 Christmas Paper Chain (1)

In the first Countdown To Christmas post, I included a printable that I made with all the activities formatted to print on 2”x2” squares. Well, the second page also includes the star that is at the top of our paper chain. I found the original poem here, and just stuck it inside a star. Kahlen cut it out before we stapled it to the top of the chain.

Nate hasn’t figured out that we get to rip off a link every day, which is probably good because there might be arguing about who’s turn it is…
