JYC December 9th

Counting Down

As well as our chocolate advent calendars, the main way we keep track of how long it is till Christmas Day is with this Santa, who I bought in Winchester a few years ago.

He's great for the boys' maths as they move along the little candy cane that marks where we are each day, and then work out how many more sleeps it is until Christmas.

The advent tree has been sent by my lovely Nan for the boys - unfortunately after we'd already started counting down this year but it still looks lovely so I have hung it in our dining room.  Next year I am thinking about putting an activity idea for the boys in each of the pockets - as well as something sweet to start the day off with!
