It doesn't have to be a long time, but even sitting down together and having a special hot chocolate gives us time out to appreciate each other and to try and remove the focus of christmas away from Christmas Day and the presents.
So I wanted to share with you some posts I have recently done on Mum in The Mad House about Christmas and our advent traditions:
Do you have a Christmas Elf, then do come and share his antics on #ElfCam on social media
Why not try making ornaments that are longer lasting that salt dough with air drying clay
Christmas eve is my most favorite day of the festive season, so join us in making Christmas Eve Gift Bags
Why not make our very simple animal friendly reindeer food
Looking for advent activity inspiration, well look no further than here!
