Advent helpers

Max is so very excited about Advent this year.

After listening to Martin & Sylvia’s Audio Advent he asked if he could be an Advent Helper.

The Advent Helper sends magical letters to children in the lead up to Christmas.


Max has so many advent ideas! First we needed to get craft supplies to write Advent letters to Ruby and Teddy!

He carefully cut out numbers and stuck them onto our red and green envelopes.

Next we made a list of things to do on our journey to Christmas.


On the 2nd of December we will bring out our Christmas books

On the 4th of December the children will start making Christmas gifts

On the 10th of December we will watch a family Christmas movie

On the 15th of December we will bake shortbread

And on Christmas Eve we will look at the Christmas lights in our neighbourhood.


But on the 1st of December, Max wanted us to write a letter to Ruby and Teddy explaining how advent would work this year.

This is like the letter the Advent Helpers sent to Martin & Sylvia

And he has been asking me when he can post it to them ever since *grin*


I love that Max is so very excited about our Advent journey, but more than that, he wants to make it magical for his sister and brother.

And that is the spirit of Christmas working through him,

Max has also discovered Sparkle Stories new Junkyard Tales audio advent. I wonder what new ideas he will have for next year now!
