Christmas Activity Tree

I love making these little activity trees (see my original Activity Tree and my Fall Activity Tree) with JaiseAnn. They are not the best looking--but they are toddler friendly and they help us keep track of the things we want to accomplish each season. We make a tree that fits the season and find a way to decorate the tree with all the activities we want to do.

This month we made a Christmas tree and put our top activities on red ornaments. JaiseAnn helped me "hang" the ornaments on the tree and then we put our tree up on the fridge.

The things on our list include:

*Going to the Christmas show (a tradition I have with my mom and we went this past weekend.)

*Trip to the post office with a hot chocolate stop

* Tour of lights 

*Handmade ornaments

*Gingerbread Men (after reading The Gingerbread Man

*Decorate our Christmas tree and watch A Muppet Christmas Carol.

*Clean and organize room to prepare for gifts (got this idea from Alexa-here)

*Deliver gifts to friends and neighbors

*Make cookies for Santa and write him a letter

Our Christmas will be simple but it will be filled with traditions and so many memories I will cherish. I wrote out this list and nearly started crying. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to be JaiseAnn's mom and to experience this holiday season with her. I am so looking forward to it. 

What are your "bucket list" activities for December?
