Christmas is only a few short weeks away (!), and shortly after Christmas, my little guy turns 2. TWO. Where did the last two years go?? Anyways, this last month will be the last month that I am a mom of one, since our baby girl is due at the very end of December. So I’m trying really hard to be present with my son, and soak up these last few weeks with him.
Part of that is creating a little bucket list for us. I love the idea of activity advent calendars so much, but M is still a little too young to really understand that whole concept. Instead, I made a small list of fun things that I would love for us to experience over the winter season (some we already have 🙂
I enjoy keeping bucket lists simple, yet fun. I made a small one this past autumn that M and I had fun trying to complete as well, (check that out here). This winter, I’m including a mix of crafts, Christmas things, baking and indoor & outdoor activities (because it gets cold AF here and is currently a frosty -30 celsius with the windchill). Brrrr.
make a gingerbread house
bake + decorate sugar cookies
eat homemade ‘snow slushies’
drive around + look at Christmas lights
wrap Christmas gifts together
make green footprint ‘mistletoes’ art
make play dough
mail Santa pictures to Grandparents
build a snowman
drink homemade hot chocolate with marshmallows
Our list is short & sweet, and perfect for my little almost-two year old ♥
Do you have any fun winter activities that are a must every year? Share in the comments below! 🙂
