Even though our ADVENT adventures might be a bit different this year, depending on lockdown/social distancing rules, I'm still excited to plan a fun December for the twins! A few of our usual activities like our local Christmas Tree Festival have moved online so we can still enjoy them, just virtually.
With just 2 weeks to go until advent begins, I've been coming up with some new ideas for us to do safely at home in case we're unable to do other activities like ice-skating and panto but should those things be open/safely organised we will likely add them back in. You can see previous years' ADVENTure blog posts here.
This is always subject to change depending on weather/how busy we are, if it snows we'll add in sledging for example, if we have a super busy work/school day, I might switch out a planned activity for a chocolate or a Christmas film. This year we only have 3 weekends in December so we will probably choose our tree on 29th November but decorate it the following weekend.
Here's this year's list of ideas for Pandemic Advent Fun...
