Advent Activities 2013

Here are our Advent Activities for 2013. We repeated a couple of favorites from 2012, but added a lot of new ones. If you're a procrastinator like I am, feel free to steal my ideas! :-) 

This year, I found a package of 12 blank cards at the dollar store in red and green. I bought 3 packages and went to town decorating them. (Pictures to come.)

Last year, I numbered them from 1-24, but this year we're going to do it as a countdown, so we'll start with number 24 tomorrow morning.
