Christmas Busy Bag Exchange

In preparation for Christmas I participated in advent style busy bag swap. Everyone chose a Christmas themed craft or activity, prepared 24 of them, and then met up for an exchange . In return we went home with 24 different bags to do with the kids. In theory one for each day counting down to Christmas, but we may go through them faster.

On our drive over we drove through a small town that had decked the streets with Christmas decorations. I guess our DaddyO's and my effort to avoid Christmas until we have celebrated Thanksgiving has been picked up by EJ. Whenever she sees a Christmas tree or decoration she announces that we "don't look". CJ is quick to comply and ended up driving through the whole town with his eyes covered.

At the house, the kids played while the adults assembled the bags.

It was fun to see how creative everyone got.

I stuck with my sewing card theme and made Christmas Cookies Lacing Cards and a Christmas Tree that I found online.

When it was time to exchange EJ had fun counting to 24 with me as she pulled out a craft from each bag.

Even though we're not quite ready to celebrate Christmas this gives us the taste of it right around the corner.
